Treasurer (voluntary role)
Bullying is devastating for young lives. Anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation are common amongst children who experience bullying, and the negative effects can be felt long into adult life, affecting academic achievement, relationships and long term mental and physical health. Unfortunately bullying is increasing.
For 25 year’s Kidscape has actively delivered programmes to children, their families/carers, and other adults, that offer practical support. Our work has been shown to be effective at building communities of support, reducing isolation and loneliness, promoting positive relationships, supporting resilience and wellbeing, and helping children recognise and respond to bullying behaviour. Whether it be through school and community based programmes, training or our advice line, we continue to support thousands of people every year. You can read more about our impact here.
After 5 years’ service, our current Treasurer will be stepping down in December and we are looking for someone who shares our passion for young people to join the Trustee team.
