The Self-Directed Support Forum, East Renfrewshire is a local organisation for anyone who is thinking about directing their own support or that of someone they care for. We also support individuals and families who are already directing an existing social care package.
Our organisation was formed in 2011 by a small collective of service users and carers. Now with funding from the Scottish Government, we have grown into an informed organisation for others to turn to and seek advice, share experiences and feel supported around all aspects of Self-Directed Support.
We are now seeking additional members to join our
Voluntary Board of Trustees
We are keen to attract people to our Board with skills, knowledge and experience in accountancy, finance and law.
As well as our AGM, the board meets 4 times per year with the occasional extra informal meetings being held, as required. The role of Trustee is primarily governance and is a voluntary post. Expenses will be reimbursed.
Neilston Development Trust (NDT) is currently looking for board members to strengthen the management team of the Trust and to support the delivery of the Trust's strategic objectives.
Formed by local people in 2006, Neilston Development Trust (NDT) is a community-based charity serving the village and residents of Neilston. The Trust is committed to the physical, cultural, social and economic renewal and sustainability of Neilston and enjoys a national profile for its innovative work. NDT’s volunteer board sets strategic direction and develops projects, with dedicated staff who report to it on their specific areas of activity.

NDT is a membership organisation and we are keen to recruit Board members from within the Neilston (G78 3) community. The Trust would also consider co-opted Board members from outside of this area if the individual’s skills would be beneficial to the work of the Trust.
This is an unpaid position and all reasonable expenses would be paid. Commitment is approximately 10 meetings per year and you may also be expected to represent the board at NDT and other community events from time to time.
We are particularly interested in recruiting board members with experience in accounting or charitable finance, but are also keen to attract applicants with other relevant skills and interests.
