The history of CrossReach stretches back 150 years to the formation of the Church of Scotland Committee on Christian Life and Work in 1869. Throughout this time CrossReach and its predecessor bodies have worked in communities all over Scotland and beyond, providing social care for those most in need. Over the years the services provided have been vast and varied, which have been adapted as time moves on to respond to the needs and requirements in current times.
In 2005 the name of the organisation was changed to CrossReach. The name Crossreach was chosen to convey the need and desire to reach out to people across Scotland who require support, all while making it clear that faith is the motivation for their work.
As mentioned, CrossReach offer a wide variety of services that are currently broken down into three key areas adults, older people, children and families. Within each key area there are various different support services available ranging from early years through to care homes, mental health support, creative art groups and everything in between. All services provided are working towards CrossReach’s overall mission which is ‘In Christs name we seek to support people to achieve the highest quality of life which they are capable of achieving at any given time’ while keeping in line with their ethos which is ‘We aim to show the practical side of our Christian faith by reflecting Christian love to those we support, through our leadership, management and working relationships’.

It is important to note that as the work CrossReach do and their work in Christ’s name this job requires you to have a Christian faith and be able to work within and uphold our Christian Ethos (this is an ongoing occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010).

The Refugee Survival Trust (RST) vision is a welcoming, inclusive, safe Scotland for refugees and asylum seekers, where all live free of destitution and have the means and opportunities to realise their full potential.
After a period of growth and diversification we’re improving our structure and focusing on longer term strategic planning and governance. We have recently appointed a CEO to develop and implement the future strategy and work of RST’s vision and aims. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for an independent, driven and creative individual to join a small committed team who deliver incredible impact for their size.
We are looking for a creative fundraiser with an entrepreneurial attitude towards fundraising to join our team.

You will be responsible for ensuring that these funds are continually topped up and maximised to meet demand.

Scottish Attachment in Action (SAIA) is a membership charity aiming to ensure that everyone understands the fundamental importance of attachment relationships throughout life by:
· Providing training and consultancy in attachment and trauma to practitioners, parents, carers and the wider community
· Providing information through educational resources, conferences, events, social media, website, and newsletters.
Membership is open to all and guided by our values.
SAIA continues to be a successful and developing charity. Over the last 12 months, we have achieved grant funding and the work of SAIA has expanded. We are now looking to increase the number of trustees on the Board.
Scottish Attachment in Action (SAIA) is excited to offer the opportunity for up to 3 individuals to join our Board of Trustees to guide and contribute to the work of SAIA.
We are looking to recruit attachment-informed individuals from across Scotland who are passionate about the work of SAIA. We would especially welcome interest from SAIA Members, and/or from those with expertise in attachment across the lifespan, in health settings, in education and/or in finance/fundraising.
SAIA’s values and in our strategy, we seek to promote diversity and challenge inequality and we would, therefore, also wish to hear from those who offer differing demographic perspectives or with experience in addressing the roots of inequality in our society.
Applicants will have the experience and skills to ensure that the charity continues to develop and be a high-quality and sustainable resource ‘to all’. As a Trustee, you will be required to contribute to the governance of the organisation including attendance at regular board meetings (currently monthly) plus 2 Development Days, an Annual Conference and the AGM. In addition, it is expected that you would contribute to ongoing development work such as training, research, or awareness raising initiatives. Please note that the work of SAIA, including Board meetings is currently being conducted virtually.
This is a voluntary role (necessary expenses, for example travel, will be paid) but one which requires commitment and dependability, with time commitments currently expected to be up to 10 hours per month. In return as a Trustee you will receive induction and support, an opportunity to shape the work of SAIA, and channel your passion and skill into making all of Scotland attachment informed.
