Who we are

The Children’s Book Project is a grassroots charity that understands the enormous power that reading has in shaping children’s lives. We have an ambition to eradicate book poverty and believe that, regardless of their circumstances, every child deserves access to inspiring reading material, expanding their perspective on the world and helping them to fulfil their potential. We collect new and lightly used books from families and publishers and gift them onwards to children growing up in poverty,


The role

One of our trustees is coming to the end of their term, having helped launch and shape the charity, and we are forever grateful for their invaluable support, enthusiasm and guidance during this key phase. We have also amended our Charitable Constitution to allow another Trustee to join our dynamic and committed board. As a result of this timing, we are now seeking two new Trustees to join us.

Marketing: someone with senior consumer or charity experience who can support us in articulating our positioning and core messaging. This may also be someone with corporate relationship management experience that might offer expertise, potentially acting as ambassador on our behalf.

  • With both appointments we are also conscious of finding one or two Chair designates, who might be happy to step into this role in due course.

    As we actively seek to increase the diversity of our trustee board, we welcome any candidate who can contribute diversity to the Board in its widest sense, including diversity of background, life experience and career. We know that different voices, ideas and perspectives will enable us to better tackle book poverty and deepen our impact.If you like the sound of this role but don’t quite meet all of the criteria, we still encourage you to apply.We are very open to first time trustees joining the board.
