Children, young people and familiesSometimes, through no fault of their own, children and young people can find their emotions get in the way of developing and learning. Caspari Foundation is a charity that helps children, young people and families to learn to cope with and overcome these barriers.

Trustees Needed

The Trustees are responsible for the overall health and financial security of the Foundation, for monitoring its work, and for strategic planning for the future. A commitment to the well-being and education of children and young people, and a belief in the value of psychotherapy are essential. People with recent managerial experience in education or social services, experience and/or an interest in training, finance and fund-raising, or marketing and publicity would be especially welcome, but we invite expressions of interest from anyone who feels they have the knowledge and skills necessary to make a real contribution to our work.
Trusteeship is voluntary, but reasonable trustee expenses may be reimbursed. If you are interested, please email us at admin@caspari.org.uk
