Who we are

Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Through our grant making and services, we work hard to make life easier for families, making a practical difference to a family’s well-being, their opportunities, and the lives of their children and young people.


The role

The role

We are looking to appoint an exceptional individual who will bring passion and commitment, as well as skills and experience to our Board. Trustees play an active role in governing the charity and are responsible for setting vision and strategic priorities, as well as ensuring the charity complies with legal, charitable and financial requirements.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop skills and experience, while at the same time, giving back to a nationwide charity that makes a real practical difference to the lives of families every day.

We are seeking to appoint a qualified accountant to our Board and to our Finance, Audit and Risk Committee, to strengthen the already established Committee with further knowledge and experience, to ensure that the Committee can maintain its obligations around objectivity and provide suitable challenge and support to the Group.

The person

We welcome candidates of any background who have the required skills and experience to be a trustee. We would like to particularly encourage those with disabilities or long-term conditions or who are parents or carers of children and young adults with disabilities or serious illnesses to apply, to bring fresh perspectives through lived experience.
