Could you help guide the future of Charlton Toy Library?

Charlton Toy Library lends families vital equipment as well as toys

Regular readers of The Charlton Champion will be familiar with Charlton Toy Library, which is a voluntary organisation based at Charlton House and helps families in need across Greenwich borough. Now it’s looking for a new chair of trustees to help guide its future…

Charlton Toy Library supports the wellbeing, safety and development of children living in Greenwich. It provides families with a place to come and meet other parents, play with their children or get advice from our very experienced members of staff. We run an outreach service providing vulnerable families with tailored support and advice, along with free access to toys, books and safety equipment to support their children’s needs. Many of the children we support through our outreach service live in families experiencing poverty and disadvantage, some have suffered domestic violence and many feel isolated.

We are now seeking a Chair who is passionate, motivated, with excellent leadership skills, who can commit the time to help drive the charity forward to its next growth stage and help increase its team. The Chair’s role is to be part of the Board of Trustees, ensuring that it fulfils its governance responsibilities and the achievement of agreed objectives as laid down in approved strategies and plans.

Interested? Take a look at the full job description and get in touch with the toy library by 21 May.
