Help us to help adoptive families thrive – become a trustee

Adoption UK is seeking trustees with a passion to help adoptive families have a brighter future. You will oversee the implementation of the charity’s strategy and help to develop our work to increase our impact and influence.

We encourage applications from people with an interest in adoption and one or more of the following areas of expertise: Adoption agency practice • Social science and academia • Campaigning • Health

Adoption UK is committed to being an inclusive charity, and we welcome applications from all backgrounds. As a UK wide charity, we aim to have representation from all constituent nations. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by members of our board of trustees and appointments made on merit.

The Board meets four times a year, currently in Birmingham or Banbury. The role of Trustee is not remunerated, but travel and expenses are paid. The annual time commitment is 5 days, plus preparation and reading time, with opportunities for deeper involvement in relevant areas of the charity’s work dependent on availability. You will also be invited to attend Adoption UK events and the annual conference.
