REIGN is expanding our advisory board and looking for new board members to join our fast-growing CIC.

REIGN values human beings above anything else; we’re particularly keen to have people on our board with diverse backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and experiences to support REIGN to flourish as an organisation.

We are happy to hear from anyone, regardless of qualifications or experience, nor do you need to hold a particular set of hard skills. Everyone has something to offer; our priority is working with an enthusiastic individual who is committed to the organisation’s mission and responsibilities set out in their role. This will be someone who can:

  • Attend our alternating bi-monthly board meetings and working groups to put development ideas into action. 
  • Help us plan for REIGN’s future through your specific role as a board member.
  • Have the ability to pass on your knowledge through teaching 
  • Be able to work within a team 
  • Have the ability to be honest and clear
  • Have commitment and be highly organised
  • Care about the mission of our social enterprise

Our new board member roles are:

Finance Advisor

Our finance advisor would work closely with our finance manager in handling the company’s bookkeeping, and have knowledge or experience in the financial management of non-profit organisations.

Fundraising Advisor

Our fundraising advisor would have knowledge or expertise in fundraising for non-profit organisations, and be able to advise on funding routes, feasibility and longer term fundraising strategy.

Business Development Advisor

An individual with knowledge or experience in the business sector, particularly in developing and maintaining a strong and sustainable CIC who will advise REIGN on ensuring our success as a social enterprise.

Independent Survivor

We’re looking for a survivor of CSE/A who is completely independent of REIGN to help us identify areas of need for the survivor community and keep victims and survivors at the heart of new developments in REIGN. 

Small Training Provider

We’re looking for an individual within a small organisation that provides training in the same sectors as REIGN and works with similar clients, but on topics outside of CSE/A, who will be able to advise on sector-development, service demand and key areas of training development.

About the reign collective

REIGN has operated as a community interest company for nearly 5 years using our lived-experiences of CSA/E to educate professionals and wider society on how to safeguard and support children and improve the care offered to victims/survivors.

We believe in the value of expertise gained through lived experience, therefore, everyone at REIGN is a victim/survivor of CSA/E. By being a survivor-led organisation, we also break the stereotypes and misconceptions about survivors of abuse. 

Our main operations involve delivering training workshops all around the country, both online and in person, to a wide range of professionals that come into contact with children. These workshops are informed by our own lived experiences as well as some of our relevant professional backgrounds.

We also campaign to raise awareness around CSA/E, offer consultancy services, and deliver speeches at conferences and events. We seek to work collaboratively with services and organisations, closing the perceived divide between victims/survivors and professionals. 

By 2027 we have ambitions to be supporting victims/survivors directly by offering peer-led services such as counselling, mentoring, and support to build skills and connections that can aid our collective healing from sexual abuse.
