EQUI-POWER is a registered charity (Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation No. SC045949) and member group of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA). We believe in the power of horses to transform lives, and work from a temporary base offering a range of therapeutic and sporting activities to 80 children and adults with additional support needs. Our work supports physical and emotional well-being, skills development, and enjoyment.
Equi-Power was established with a mission to create a new, purpose-built RDA centre of excellence for Scotland. Our vision includes high quality facilities to deliver the therapeutic riding, vaulting, carriage driving, learning and volunteering opportunities that RDA is recognised for UK wide, alongside community facilities including a fully accessible play area and café with Changing Places toilet. Work on this project is being led by the Board of Trustees and the staff team, with continued support from the wider community. Following the submission of a planning application in Dec 2022, significant resourcing of fundraising and capital project management expertise is sought at board level to help bring the vision to fruition.
Professional applicants with significant expertise in capital fundraising and capital project management who would like to use their skills to support an exciting project with outstanding social outcomes are invited to apply.
