Who we are

CCS Adoption is a Voluntary Adoption Agency. We find permanent, loving homes for children who have a plan for adoption, including those who tend to wait longest. We also provide a range of therapeutic packages to adopted children and their families; and a wide range of innovative support services for adoptive families, offering groups, activities, workshops and training for Adoptive families from The Centre. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, we are continuously developing and improving our services


The role

Do you want to make a positive difference to the
lives of children by helping them to find their forever family? Do you want to ensure
there is ongoing, specialist support for children and families for as long as
they need it? If so, this fantastic opportunity could be for you.

We are looking to recruit 2 trustees with a
commitment to CCS and its mission, and a willingness to put time and energy
into the trustee role. We are particularly interested in people who have
experience in the following:

  • A professional experienced in the field
    of Permanence (Adoption, fostering or kinship)
  • A health professional, preferable a
    paediatrician or significant experience with children/young people
  • A professional in the field of
    therapeutic interventions
  • Fundraising and income generation
  • Marketing

We are looking for someone who has
a Social Work background with expertise in finding permanent placements for
vulnerable children who are unable to remain with their birth parents.

In
addition we are also looking for someone who has the lived experience of going
through the adoption process. Ideally, but not essential, it would be helpful
to have experience of working in the voluntary sector.

Whether you are an
experienced Trustee or wanting to take the first step at Board level, if you
share our ethos, we’d like to hear from you.
