Staf (Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum) is the only national membership organisation in Scotland working with care experienced young people and the professionals who support them with the vision of creating a country where the wellbeing and success of young people leaving care is indistinguishable from that of their peers in the general population. 

Our current Board of Directors has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the sector, and bring passion and commitment to supporting Staf in making our vision a reality, and further, to #KeepThePromise to Scotland’s children and young people as they transition to Throughcare and Aftercare.

To ensure that the voice of young people is helping to direct the strategy and direction of Staf, we already have 2 care experienced young person representatives on our Board . . . and we are seeking to appoint another Youth Director. 

If you are aged 16-26 and want to help Staf to continue influencing policy and practice, create platforms for care leavers and practitioners to have their voices heard, and offer opportunities for networking, collaboration and sharing good practice – then please let us know.

Please send a covering letter (maximum 2 sides of A4) and CV to [email protected] detailing what you can bring to the Staf Board, and what motivates you to get involved. 

Please note that this position is non-remunerative and asks for a commitment of approximately one day per month including four full Board meetings per year, potential involvement in our Finance & HR Sub Group (requirement for Treasurer) and Board Development and Strategy sessions.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Jo Derrick, Staf’s CEO, by calling 0141 465 7511 or by emailing [email protected]
