ABOUT THE ROLE 

 

Our Board Members play a vital role in making sure that Star Support achieves its core purpose. Board Members oversee the overall management and administration, ensuring that we have a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision. Just as importantly, they support and challenge the executive team to enable Star Support to grow and thrive, and through this, ensure LGBTIQ+ survivors of domestic and sexual violence have access to safe and inclusive accommodation. Board members have a collective responsibility, this means that members always act as a group and not as individuals.

About you:
 

As a by-and-for organisation, we ensure at least 80% of our staff and volunteers (including board members) identify as LGBTIQ+. Therefore, we generally aim our recruitment at LGBTQ+ people. In some instances, we may accept someone who does not identify as LGBTIQ+, if we believe they would have a meaningful contribution to Star Support. 

 

We are particularly interested in recruiting board members who identify and being part of the global majority and those who identify as survivors. 

 

Most desirable areas of expertise:

 

  • Governance 

  • LGBTIQ+ Domestic Abuse (welcoming front line, managerial or academic experience)

  • Trauma and mental health

  • Fundraising 

  • Corporate engagement 

If you don’t meet any of these but think you would be a good fit, we would love to hear from you.
