Grampian Women’s Aid (GWA) is recruiting Trustees to join our Board. GWA is a charity based in Aberdeen, with over 45 years’ experience providing information, support and safe accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic abuse across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
The role of Trustee is a unique voluntary opportunity for women from diverse backgrounds who have expertise, time and are committed to making a real difference to the lives of women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.
As a member of GWA Board, you will play a key role in the strategy of GWA and overseeing its governance to ensure it can continue to provide high quality services to women, children and young people across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. You don’t need to be an expert in domestic abuse, but you do need to have an understanding of the impact it has on women and children and be committed to GWA’s vision and values.
