Trustees

Website Antenatal Results & Choices (ARC)

ARC offers a vital service. In the UK, approximately 700,000 pregnant women are offered some form of screening test every year, such as an ultrasound scan and/or a blood test. As a result, over 20,000 expectant parents will be told that their baby may not be developing as expected. This causes a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty for expectant parents and their families.

ARC offers a unique and important support service that provides impartial information, advice and guidance for parents who are making decisions about antenatal tests and results. We do this throughout their journey – before, during and after tests and our services are openly and widely available to anyone who needs them.

Over the past 40 years, ARC has developed into an expert, well-funded and deeply respected charity. This is a pivotal time in the charity’s evolution as we look to continue growing and deepening our impact across the health sector. There are still so many more parents who could benefit from our work, and this is a great opportunity for new trustees to join the extended team.

Trustee opportunities

  • We are looking for future-focused and compassionate people to share leadership responsibilities with fellow trustees and support Jane Fisher and her team in delivering our excellent services.
  • We are open to trustees from all backgrounds. However, we are particularly interested in recruiting new trustees who can help us widen our reach and extend our vital support beyond what we do already via our helpline, publications, parent forums, volunteer network and newsletter. You might come from a communications background, have experience working with underserved communities, or have lived experience with the communities we are trying to reach.
  • We are looking to our new trustees to bring a unique insight onto the board and who share our vision and values.
  • Previous board experience is not required.
