About Spoons

Spoons is a service user and volunteer led organisation. We work with families and  NHS trusts to improve and co-design neonatal services.

Spoons works with parents and the wider family based on individual needs. Families can self refer to our services or can be referred by a health professional involved in the care of their baby. 

Ensuring families are well supported in neonatal care is at the very heart of what we do. We are seeking trustees with the right skills and experience too lead the charity effectively.

Role summary

Spoons wishes to see diverse knowledge, skills and experience represented on its Board. All Trustees will be expected to meet at least one of these criteria. In particular we are seeking Trustee who have experience in the following areas:

  • Senior level strategic management experience within a third sector organisation, ideally a charity.
  • Recent experience (within the last 5 years) of fundraising for, or in, a third sector organisation.
  • Experience at senior level of financial management, ideally within a charity.
  • A professional qualification and significant practitioner experience in an area of relevance to Spoons such as charity law, project or programme management.

Person Specification
