Trustees sought for Rape Counselling & Resource Centre, Kilmarnock
with restructuring as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, the Rape
Counselling & Resource Centre (RCRC) in Kilmarnock
is seeking new trustees to enhance its Management Committee.
The Rape Counselling & Resource Centre provides a vital, free, specialist support service, including counselling, complementary therapies and information, for women and girls living in East Ayrshire who have experienced any form of sexual violence, recently or in the past.
We would like to encourage applications from women who have a broad range of life and professional skills and with an interest in providing a supporting role for other women in our community. Previous experience not necessary however, women with a good understanding of the financial and governance needs of a small charity, funding and income generation, knowledge of employment, HR, business skills and entrepreneurship would be welcome additions to our growing team.
Trustees hold voluntary positions but can be reimbursed expenses, which can include costs of transport to and from meetings and any training undertaken with us. New Trustees will be given induction and support on appointment to the role.
Women interested in becoming a Trustee for RCRC should email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application pack and further information.
How to volunteer
Our centres could not provide the support they do without many women giving their time, energy and commitment as volunteers and unpaid workers.
We welcome contact from women interested in becoming members of our collectives. Full training is provided and specific details are available from each centre. If you are interested, find contact details for your local centre here.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com
Please note that our intake for training in Autumn 2014 is now closed; however if you would like to get in touch so that we can keep your name on file for the future we would be very glad to hear from you.
