Trustee – Street Child United

Street Child United, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children living on the streets, is looking for people to join their team as a trustee. Application deadline: 1 November 2019.

About the organisation

Street Child United is a small charity with big ambition – we believe that no child should have to live on the streets. Based in London, we use the power of sport to provide a global platform for street-connected children to be seen and their voices heard, so they can receive the protection, support and opportunities that every child is entitled to.

Ahead of the world’s biggest sporting events (FIFA World Cup, ICC Cricket World Cup, and the IOC Olympic and Paralympic Games), we organise international sports events for street-connected children, challenging the negative perceptions and treatment of street children worldwide.

We are the proud organisers of the Street Child World Cup, Street Child Cricket World Cup and Street Child Games.

About the role

After two major events in the past two years, Street Child United are entering a new phase, in which we will develop our work and implement new programmes ahead of our next two major events in 2022 and 2023. We are therefore looking for new trustees, with the energy, dedication and expertise to support the charity through this next period of growth and change.

Key duties

We are looking for people with the energy to contribute to our work week to week, providing our small staff team with advice, support, introductions and concrete contributions to our charitable objectives.

You will be expected to participate in quarterly board meetings, and an annual strategy day, helping to review, shape and drive the work of the charity. Board meetings are held at various locations around central London on Wednesday evenings, and dates are confirmed well in advance.

The general duties of a trustee are:

  • To provide leadership for the charity
  • To ensure necessary resources are in place to meet the charity’s objectives
  • To review the performance of the management team
  • To set the values and standards by which the charity operates

This is a voluntary (unpaid role). The board meetings take place in London, UK.
