National Children’s Bureau.
Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

For more than sixty years, we have been bringing people and organisations together to drive change in society and deliver a better childhood across the UK. Since 1963, we have been at the forefront of campaigning for children and young people’s rights.


At NCB, the Board and the senior leadership team have guided the organisation so that it is well-poised to meet the challenges ahead, continuing to deliver our mission and developing the key objectives that will drive the delivery of NCB’s new strategy. In February 2024, just before the financial year end, we welcomed Research in Practice into the NCB family. We now have more than t 200 staff and annual turnover of nearly £20m.

We are in good financial health and our robust level of reserves enables us to consider increased investment to help us deliver our ambitious strategy. However, with an uncertain economic and political landscape, our focus on financial resilience must also continue.

We believe that being a Trustee isn’t solely about fulfilling the many duties and responsibilities that come with the Board function. Trustees give a great deal, and in return we want Trustees to have opportunities to grow and develop personally and professionally through their engagement as part of a truly inspirational organisation.
