The role

​Be the Catalyst for Stronger Families! Join Man & Boy as a Trustee!

Are you passionate about enhancing families and fostering meaningful connections between Men and their Boys? Man & Boy, a dynamic charity committed to strengthening family relationships, is searching for dedicated individuals to join our Board of Trustees and help guide our future, as we look to consolidate our work and look to reach a wider audience.

About Us: Man & Boy work to enhance family relationships, between boys who may be struggling with life and a significant male in their lives. This could be the biological father, but could be a stepfather, grandfather, uncle or even an older sibling. Our programming uses diverse activities where the man can be a role model to the boy, based on fun, encouragement, trust and open communication. We generally focus on boys between the ages of 8 and 11 years of age, prior to them entering the challenges of adolescence and secondary school.

  • Impactful purpose: Be a part of an organization dedicated to making a real difference in the lives of families.
  • Innovation: Contribute to the development of pioneering programs that strengthen family relationships.
  • Community Engagement: Engage with diverse communities and be a positive force for change.
  • Collaboration: Work alongside a passionate team of professionals and fellow Trustees.

Role of a Trustee: As a Trustee for Man & Boy, you will play a vital role in steering the organization toward greater success. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Strategic Leadership: Provide guidance and contribute to the strategic direction of the charity.
  • Advocacy: Advocate for the importance of Man-Boy relationships and the positive impact on family dynamics.
  • Governance: Ensure the organisation operates ethically and within legal and regulatory frameworks.
  • Networking: Utilize your skills and connections to enhance our reach and impact.

What We Are Looking For: We are seeking at least 3 new Trustees, including a Treasurer, who are passionate about family values and committed to our mission. Ideal candidates will:

What are the requirements: Our board meet quarterly, usually alternating between in person and online, with the meetings taking place on weekday evenings. In addition, the Board and Director will look for your engagement and commitment in specific areas of work that your skillset, knowledge, network and passions lend themselves too, on an ongoing basis.
