Job description

About us

Strength & Stem is a small charity that exists to prepare women who have survived human trafficking and modern slavery for meaningful employment, using floristry as the tool. We believe that floristry can be used as a practical tool to help survivors to build a future for themselves, as well as a therapeutic tool in healing from trauma. Every year, we run a holistic employability and skills training programmes for a cohort of fifteen survivors. Over nine months participants complete vocational floristry training, prevocational and wellbeing skills training, mentorship, and work experience.

The skills and experiences survivors gain through our programmes create a lasting difference for them and their families through economic independence, strengthened wellbeing and increased community. Ultimately, our vision is to see survivors restored from their trauma, empowered for the future, and able to sustain a good quality of life.

The charity is currently recruiting two trustees – a treasurer and a trustee with safeguarding experience. This is an exciting opportunity for experienced or first time Board members to shape the direction of a small, ambitious charity, continually ensuring that all activities are survivor-centred and have an impact positively disproportionate to the organisations’ age and stage of development.
