Who we are

We are looking for highly motivated individuals who would like to use their professional and/or personal experience, time, and skills to develop and deliver a sustainable growth strategy for the charity. 

 

We ask trustees to dedicate at least 8 hours per month to support the running of the charity, and the work of our community coaches and volunteers. Board meetings are held bi-monthly, usually in the early evening in central London, although recent experience has demonstrated that it should be possible to attend meetings remotely, at least part of the time. 

 

Currently, we particularly welcome trustees with skills in corporate fundraising, organisational development, and growth and financial management. 

 

All trustees will actively contribute to setting policy and the strategic direction of the charity. 

 

Many of our women have experienced significant and complex trauma, so our sessions are run by qualified, female group leaders to address concerns over emotional and physical safety, under a Genuine Occupational Requirement.  A Mile in Her Shoes welcomes trustee applications from all genders. 

 

Please note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown most of our activities are currently suspended, but we are working hard behind the scenes to provide ongoing support to our beneficiaries and to ensure we can restart our sessions as quickly as possible post lockdown.  Our Board will also need to identify where we need to adapt and change as an organisation to meet the changed operating and financial environment post emergency.
