Refugee Futures works with partners in Stockton-on-Tees to ensure local opportunities are accessible to refugees and people seeking asylum, and that they are able to maximise their abilities and connect with and feel included in the local community. Ultimately, we hope more people will opt to remain in Stockton once their status is secured.
We are a relatively new charity with a board of six trustees which leads the governance of the organisation, chaired by Peter Chapman and supported by the executive director, Heather Petch, OBE and a small, committed team of staff and volunteers.
We are actively seeking a Trustee Finance Lead to help us deliver our mission and be a sustainable and trusted charity which manages the money it is entrusted with wisely; complies with relevant legal requirements; and manages risk appropriately. For this role we are looking for someone with accounting or relevant financial expertise but training in the responsibilities of a charity trustee will be provided, if necessary.
The Board is a welcoming group with a diverse range of life and work experience in the public sector, charities and other not for profit organisations, business, and also with lived experience of the immigration and asylum process. We seek to become an organisation where people with lived experience as an asylum seeker are in the driving seat of our direction.
