Cats Protection

Board meetings (if not virtual) are usually held at the National Cat Adoption Centre in Sussex or at an off-site location.

Cats Protection is the UK's leading cat welfare charity. We're working towards a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs. Since we were founded in 1927, we've helped a huge number of cats and kittens - rehoming over 2 million and positively impacting the lives of millions more.

We help over 200,000 cats and kittens every year through our network of over 210 volunteer-run branches and 37 centres. However, our work doesn't stop with rehoming thousands of cats a year. We also promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow, and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.

Cats Protection welcomes applications from volunteers in all roles across the charity as well as external candidates to complement the current Board. The new Trustees will be joining at an exciting time as Cats Protection moves forward to develop and implement the new strategic plan. With long serving Trustees reaching the end of their terms, Cats Protection is seeking up to three Trustees who bring a strategic insight in one or more of the following areas:

• experience of governance in a comparable size charity

• experience of strategic financial management of a large, complex organisation

• experience in audit/risk management

Cats Protection is committed to achieving greater diversity in its board and welcomes applications from currently under-represented groups at Board level including people from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds, and disabled people.
