Who we are

We are the national charity for road crash victims. Our role is to support victims, campaign for judicial reform and reduce road danger. Our members include those who have been bereaved or injured in crashes and those who are concerned about road danger.


The role

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with financial or accountancy experience and an understanding of the not-for-profit sector.

Who we are

RoadPeace was established in 1992 by Brigitte Chaudry, a mother whose son was violently killed by a van driver who ignored red traffic lights. We are a membership organisation whose work is informed by the needs and experiences of road crash victims. RoadPeace is governed by a Board of Trustees and has a small staff team, who work in partnership with a vibrant network of members and volunteers. RoadPeace provides information and support services to people bereaved or seriously injured in road crashes and engages in campaigning work to fight for justice for victims and reduce road danger.

The role

RoadPeace has a vision for a world where road danger is not tolerated and where road crash victims receive justice and compassion.

We exist to support and empower those bereaved and injured by road crashes and their families; to improve the justice system’s post-crash response and to spare future generations from preventable death and injury. As a membership charity, we put victims at the heart of our work, equipping them to support themselves and others, campaign for change and shape RoadPeace’s work.

Following its 30th anniversary, RoadPeace is looking towards the next chapter and after reviewing how to develop and strengthen the charity, is in the process of creating a new strategy.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and compassionate Treasurer to provide financial insight and leadership to the Board, assist with the new strategy and ensure that the organisation has long-term sustainability and delivers its charitable objectives in close cooperation with the Board of Trustees, Chair and CEO.

We would like to work with a Treasurer who has strong empathy with the organisation’s objectives and has some understanding or interest in what it means to be bereaved or seriously injured in a road crash.

We would like to hear from you if you have the financial skills or expertise for this role, whether in the public or private sectors. Fundraising experience is desirable.

Applicants should please send a cover letter and CV, as well as two references, to RoadPeace Chair Petra Kendall-Raynor via petra.kendall-raynor@roadpeace.org
