get2gether recently conducted a board skills survey which highlighted areas where knowledge could be strengthened. We are looking to add a trustee with general business skills, ideally combined with finance and/or fundraising. The Board meets 6 times per year, in addition to the Annual General Meeting, plus ad hoc as necessary (e.g. planning and strategy days)The board meetings are typically 10-12 pm on Fridays, currently virtually.
More about get2gether:
Established in 2012, get2gether is a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation). People with disabilities have the same emotional experiences as everyone else. At get2gether, we use a mentoring and coaching approach to encourage adults with disabilities to self-reflect, take responsibility for their own actions, and lead their own lives. We believe that everyone has the right to love and friendship. We also believe that people meeting each other should be easy, fun, and accessible. That’s why we arrange social activities for people with disabilities online and in safe and friendly places in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our members tell us what they’re interested in – and that’s what we do, encouraging self-determination and opportunities to step into leadership roles.
