NIDAS supports women and families with all aspects of domestic abuse. We believe being free from abuse is only the start of the journey. We support those affected by domestic abuse to stay safe, grow their self-esteem and go on to build happy, healthy relationships. Our team work in a kind, caring and non-judgmental way, providing personalised support for as long as it is needed. 


We are looking for new trustees with passion to serve those affected by domestic abuse and who have skills and experience in one or more of these areas:

 Charity finance including financial planning and budgeting, and year-end accounts.
Fundraising from trusts and foundations
The role of the trustee board is to receive assets from donors, safeguard them and apply them to the charitable purposes of NIDAS. The trustee board must always act in the best interests of NIDAS, exercising the same standard of duty of care that a prudent person would apply if looking after the affairs of someone for whom they have responsibility. The trustee board must act as a group not as individuals.

 Ensure that NIDAS complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations 
Ensure that NIDAS pursues its objects as defined in its governing document 
Ensure NIDAS applies its resources exclusively in pursuance of its charitable objects. For example, it cannot spend money on activities which are not included in the objects, however worthwhile they may be 
Contribute actively to the board of trustees by giving a firm strategic direction, setting overall policies, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance against targets. 
Ensuring the financial stability and sustainability of NIDAS
