About Parity Charity:

PARITY was first formed in 1986 as the Campaign for Equal State Pension Ages (CESPA), a wholly voluntary organisation concerned with the equal rights of men and women, and we achieved charitable status in January 2005 making us one of the longest established sex equality charities.

Our objects are currently those set out in the constitution, namely:

to promote and protect the equal rights of men and women to the enjoyment of all civil, political, economic social and cultural rights under the law;

to institute proceedings in the UK or appropriate European Courts for the purpose of establishing or protecting any such equal rights.

PARITY 2023.

PARITY is a national non-party charity having no paid staff or public funding.

Because PARITY seeks changes in the law to redress statutory sex discrimination, it has been deemed in the past to be “political” and thus been denied charitable status. Its funding therefore depends entirely on subscriptions and donations from members and sympathetic individuals and organisation.

What You Will Be Doing:


  • Oversee the financial affairs of the organisation and ensure they are legal,
  • constitutional and within accepted accounting practice.
  • Ensure proper records are kept and that effective financial procedures are in place.

  • in interpreting financial data to them.
  • Regularly report the financial position at committee meetings (balance sheet, cashflow, fundraising performance etc).
  • If required, oversee the production of an annual budget and propose its adoption at the last meeting of the previous financial year.
  • Ensure proper records are kept and that effective financial procedures and controls are in place, as applicable ie
  • – Cheque signatories
  • – Purchasing limits
  • – Purchasing systems
  • – Petty cash/ float
  • Appraising the financial viability of plans, proposals and feasibility studies.
  • Lead on appointing and liaising with auditors/an independent examiner.
