Job title: Trustee

Organisation: Maa Shanti


Closing date: 19/07/2021

Job description: We are looking for committed and enthusiastic women to help lead us through our next phase of development in new areas across London. The role requires a commitment of 4 quarterly Board Meetings a year plus one half-day strategy meeting and an Annual General Meeting. We are looking for women of South Asian origin with an interest in, and some understanding of, the needs of Asian women experiencing domestic abuse. We are very keen to welcome candidates with lived experience. Skills that would be a helpful addition to our Board are HR, charity finance, fundraising, campaigning and charity management. We are looking for women who live and/or work in London but this is not essential. Our name was chosen by our service users “Maa” meaning “mother” and “Shanti” meaning “peace”. Our values are openness, empowerment, respect and equality. There is no other organisation like ours supporting Asian mums in the UK. We continue to work to ensure that no woman is left behind and is provided with the tools and confidence to access support from us and other agencies via different platforms. We want to continue to develop our service to reach more women who need us. Since 2018 we have increased capacity, met more need and maintained quality whilst adapting to changing circumstances and need. We intend to continue with this approach to build on our solid reputation in our local networks by working collaboratively and raising awareness of our clients’ needs.
