Job Description

The PSU is an award winning charity that provides practical and emotional support to the vast numbers of people facing the civil and family courts without the help of a lawyer. We have just under 700  volunteers and around 52 staff based at 24 locations in 19 cities in England & Wales.

In June 2018, we reached the milestone of helping on 300,000 occasions.  Over 75% of these occasions of support were in the period 2013-2018. At the end of January 2019 we had reached 343,407 occasions of support. This reflects both the great need, resulting from changes to Legal Aid provision, and our successful expansion to date to meet more of that need.

We are now looking for a number of trustees to replace experienced Board members who are coming to the end of their terms of office. The Board is particularly interested in recruiting a practicing lawyer/barrister, an investment or corporate business person and someone with an understanding of the financial requirements of a charity.  An interest in fundraising and an understanding of the civil and family court would be useful.
