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.
Food Train is an award winning voluntary organisation, providing practical support services to older people across Scotland, helping them to eat well, live well and age well. Our Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire branch currently offers 2 services to older people: grocery shopping and our innovative Meal Makers neighbourhood meal sharing service. Due to additional funding, we are now seeking an outstanding individual to help develop our services in the Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire region.
We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic individual committed to the voluntary sector and older people’s services. Applicants will have excellent communication skills and a sound understanding of volunteer management and service delivery. The ideal candidate will have experience of successful, people-based service development and partnership working in the voluntary sector. Having a driver’s licence and access to a car for work purposes is essential to the Development Officer’s role.
