Escape Family Support Ltd. is a small charity based in Ashington which provides support across Northumberland to families and carers affected by the addiction of a loved one to alcohol and/or drugs. You can read more about their activities in their latest annual report.

The organisation is flexible in terms of the skills and attributes people might bring to the role. We welcome diversity and could make good use of a wide range of skills including for example: company secretary, general management, marketing/ communications/public relations, social care and support – Adults and Young People, HR, IT, administration, minute taking, volunteering, fundraising, finance/accountancy and legal etc.

Candidates may have hands-on, academic or management experience in any of the fields above, together with a genuine desire to become involved. Previous experience of being a trustee is not essential as training will be provided. Our current trustees come from a varied range of backgrounds and we are a friendly bunch!

If you think you may be interested in becoming one of our trustees, or maybe to volunteer initially to become more familiar with the charity, please contact the Chair, Jackie L M Axelby, who would be happy to supply further information or come out and visit you to talk about things in more detail.
