ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the national charity of the British Army, providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families when they are in need. We were founded in 1944 to ensure that soldiers returning from World War Two were well cared for. Since then, the welfare of soldiers, past and present, and their families has been at the heart of everything we do.
In the past year, we have spent some £17.3 million helping many thousands of individuals in need as well as funding 92 delivery partners in support of the Army family at large. We pride ourselves on acting immediately when help is needed, providing true through-life support for the nation’s soldiers, veterans and families.
The Charity is now seeking three new Trustees to join the Board, as part of planned Trustee turnover. We are primarily looking for experienced, effective individuals who will bring a wise head and a strategic mindset to the Board but would welcome Finance, Legal and possibly Fundraising experience. As important as the relevant skills and experience, is a commitment to the aims of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and its values, and an empathy with the people it supports. The estimated time commitment for this role is seven days a year, but a willingness to readily share time and expertise is essential.
Reflecting the varied communities that we are proud to serve, we are committed to the diversity of our leadership and board. We actively and warmly encourage applications therefore from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
