Crossroads Fife Central is looking to recruit innovative, enthusiastic people to expand on the skills and expertise of our Management Committee. Crossroads Fife Central is one of the leading providers of home-based respite care for Carers. The organisation offers this short breaks service to people who care for someone of any age and any disability. The service is provided by trained, paid staff in the service user's home or service users are taken out within Central and NE Fife on a day and time which suits them. The organisation is also a registered provider of Self Directed Support and Purchased Care. Crossroads Fife Central has charitable status and is led by an experienced Board who have overall responsibility for the governance and strategic direction of the organisation's work.
All Board members are issued with an induction pack. There is initial and ongoing support from other members of the Board and the manager service. There are opportunities for ongoing training.
Looking for individuals who possess knowledge, skills and experience of human resources, business, charity work work with entrepreneurial skills or have an understanding of the caring role.
Restrictions on who can volunteer
No restrictions were specified.
The Board meet every 2 months in the evening in Glenrothes.
Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!
Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
