Operating across Glasgow, we provide a one-week holiday to 120 families per year.
The families we support are those who need a short break most; for them a holiday is not a luxury, it is a much-needed break from the stresses and strains brought about by their circumstances. Whist a holiday would make a big difference to these families; many are unable to afford a trip to the seaside let alone a short break.
As a result of sustained funding from Glasgow Housing Association and the Family Holiday Association as well as new funding from the Big Lottery Fund and The Robertson Trust we are embarking on an exciting three year plan to provide more respite and social tourism opportunities to a greater number of families in Glasgow who need them most.
The Caravan Project has provided affordable holidays and respite to people living in of Glasgow since 1985. We have recently created a new 3 year strategy which will see us develop an exciting range of short break opportunities for disadvantaged families from across Glasgow.
To support us during this exciting new phase in our growth we are seeking to appoint a new Chair and trustees with a range of skills including Business Development, Finance and Marketing to complement our existing board of 7.
You will be tasked with working closely with the board and our General Manager to meet the organisations strategic aims and objectives. You must be committed to the values of a community focused organisation. You will scrutinise, review and monitor the management reports and constructively challenge the management where necessary.
These are voluntary roles, however any reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of you carrying out your role as board member will be reimbursed.
