We urgently require a Treasurer with a good level of accountancy/book-keeping skills to potentially take over as Treasurer given the poor health of our present Treasurer.
Trustees may be needed to support the Project Manger to assist at the office when required or to assist undertake specific tasks. This should provide an overview of project through the work undertaken both at committee and operational level.
This overarching and eclectic nature of the role of committee member /Trustee may appeal to people from a social care perspective with an in interest of working as a member of a team as a committee member and with the Project Manager, the public, community and statutory other bodies.
The role could also appeal to those interested in community sector involvement including raising the profile of our project and sharing ideas with other agencies in utilising both our own and other services more effectively.
We welcome people who can use their own initiative and offer their own skills and ideas to contribute to the aims and objectives of the project. We are for example working with agencies to identify people who may be socially isolated by virtue of a disability and in seeking ways to support people access our service.
Training and support will be provided to understand the wider issues of working within the Charitable sector and the importance of funding, promotion and direct support to people who use our service.
