Help us to lead Sacro into the future

Sacro is a national charity working with people who are caught up in the criminal justice system in some way, or simply struggling to get support. We work in a holistic way with people locally, in partnership with local authorities and other providers to provide help and hope.

Sacro is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 2021 and we are in the midst of our Project 50, delivering our new strategy and some big changes for the future, to keep us at the leading edge of practice in community justice, working with people to deliver life changing services ensure that no-one struggles alone.

We are seeking a new trustee to join the Board as we lead Sacro into a new phase of its development and ensuring that we are a sustainable, inclusive and people focused organisation. Sacro recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. To this end, we welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds.

We want to ensure that our Board has a diverse membership. Whilst we would value applications from people with an understanding of the issues facing the Scottish justice system, applications are also welcome from those with experience of business development or wider community safety and mediation. The most important thing is your passion to support the people we work with.

We now operate meetings virtually so geographical location should not be a barrier. The role is voluntary and not remunerated with board meetings four times each year and other committee meetings scheduled.
