Sexual violence simply shouldn’t exist and no one should deal with it alone. While it does, we’ll be here to support and empower victims and survivors, inform the public and protect future generations.

SV2 supports anyone in Derbyshire or Derby City who has experienced sexual abuse, assault or violence, including friends and family members. We support people irrespective of age, gender or when the abuse occurred.

SV2 is at an exciting point in our development, with changes across victim and survivor services coming over the next 12-18 months as a result of a refreshed commitment from government to effectively reduce the number of victims and ensure that victims and survivors receive the highest quality of support at the right time. To support us in that we’re looking to recruit at least two new trustees and a chair of trustees, ideally with experience of marketing and communications, fundraising and business development, legal expertise or digital innovation and service delivery.

We’re looking for people with a passion for ensuring that victims and survivors get the right support, at the right time. This might be through professional or lived experience, or through your own interests. Our trustees need to have good interpersonal skills and the ability to challenge others effectively.

All trustees receive a full induction from the Board and the Chief Executive to ensure that they are supported and empowered to undertake this vital role.  Our Trustee role is a perfect opportunity for someone who wants to share their professional and/or lived experience in a governance role for the first time.

We’re particularly keen to hear from potential trustees from backgrounds we know are under-represented in our sector. This includes men, people who are LGBTQ+ and people from Black, Asian or other ethnic minority backgrounds. Please contact us for an application pack.
