We're looking for strategic thinkers who are capable of assisting in the development of policy and planning. Financial skills would be welcome and it is essential you have a commitment to parenting in positive & nurturing ways.

Membership is by a small subscription and Governance members are co-opted or voted in at our AGM.


You would be welcome to contact us to arrange to come along to meetings to see if this is for you.

This is a voluntary role.
