We have volunteer opportunities for various roles. They include:


We are looking for someone who can complement the existing Board of Trustees. You would be working with other trustees who have different skills, knowledge and experience but who are all committed to delivering great governance and overseeing the strategic direction of the organisation.
The current board is very keen to reflect the community it serves therefore CAB is currently recruiting those from a BAME background.
