Glasgow Building Preservation Trust is a charity that works to rescue, repair and restore historic buildings at risk across the city. Since 1982, we have worked in partnership with others to give redundant buildings a new purpose and return them to their communities. The Trust also organises the annual Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival in September, which celebrates and promotes the city’s architecture and rich built heritage.
We are looking to recruit volunteer Trustees to build on the Trust’s success to date and help steer it towards its future goals. They will work alongside the rest of the Board and staff to continue to raise the profile of the organisation whilst ensuring that an effective business strategy and financial safeguards are in place for the charity. It is an exciting time for the Trust as we look to develop new projects across the city.
Whilst the roles are voluntary, training will be provided and reasonable travel expenses offered.
We would like to encourage applications from BAME communities, women and younger people.
We would particularly, but not exclusively, welcome applications from people with experience in any of the following areas:
· Finance and accountancy
· Property and Construction Law
· Business Development
WEvolution is currently looking for a Partnership Manager to join their team to manage and develop a high-quality Partnerships Programme.
WEvolution has an ongoing Partnerships Programme aimed at scaling the SRG movement and its socio-economic impact nationally. The Self-Reliant Group (SRG) approach has been pioneered by WEvolution in Scotland and has been successfully replicated in areas of Wales, England and the Netherlands. Frustrated by traditional community development practice in the UK where social development was the primary measure of success, SRGs developed as spaces where both social and economic development were seen as equally important. SRGs have given people a model from which they can self-lead, self-organise and self-generate their own aspirations, contributing to an increase in the sense of control. Additionally, this way of working has resulted in improved well-being, increased financial autonomy and greater social networks.
Over the next two, WEvolution aims to develop and support 10 partnerships across Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England, with organisations and individuals who wish to set up SRGs in their communities. We will support partners by building a strong body of resources, relationships and evidence bases enabling the forward progression of the SRG movement.
Our envisaged end game is an open source model where the SRG movement grows to a critical mass and generates its own momentum, attracts private and public investment and is easily implemented by organisations and individuals without notable support needed from WEvolution. We will act as a ‘Centre of Excellence’, championing the model and running a small number of SRGs to retain credibility and research best practice.
