As a small local charity we rely on the support from the community in which we operate
There are many ways you can support us:
- Make a donation using our on-line LocalGiving.com page.
- Become a volunteer Trustee and shape the future of this charity.
- Become a member of our charity and have a vote at all General Meetings.
- Volunteer with the young carers team or with the adult support team.
- Volunteer in the office and help us with specific tasks.
- Get involved in local fund-raising as a volunteer.
- Let us have your feedback and tell us what you think about our services.
Making a donation couldn’t be easier:
If we have supported you and you want to give something back, or if you are simply interested and concerned about carer issues, or just want to support a local charity, you can make an on-line donation using our Local Giving page.
Being a Volunteer Trustee:
Being a volunteer Trustee of a local charity can be very rewarding and often people find that they learn new skills as well as being able to offer their own skills and experience to the growth of the organisation. Being a Trustee comes with responsibilities of course but we try to make it as easy as possible for you to understand what these are. From time to time, we look for specific skills that people can offer. This is because places on the Trustee Board are limited and we need to make sure that we have the right skills at the right time. This means that we have an application and interview process for all trustees that volunteer. Being a Trustee commits you to attending a minimum of 6 meetings every year and being prepared to come along to other development events and meetings. For more information about becoming a Trustee on the Board, contact the Chief Executive: email@example.com
Becoming a Member:
You can become a member of our charity by signing up to support our objectives, mission statement and values. Being a member of the Carers Centre means that you have the right to vote at all General Meetings and have certain powers within our constitution. It is a great way of showing your support for what we do and means that we can demonstrate community and carer support when we are applying for funding or fund-raising locally. To volunteer with our team, whether in the office or hands on with the young carer or adult support services, can be a rewarding and valuable way of supporting us and gaining valuable experience for you.
Becoming a Volunteer:
As a volunteer you get to choose what kind of role you are most interested in and how much time you would like to give. It’s also a great way of developing your skills and getting ready to go into employment or return to work after an illness or a break for other reasons. We can offer lots of different volunteer experiences and usually have specific opportunities we are hoping to fill. If you are interested in volunteering get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org Local fund-raising is another way to support us through volunteering. We always need support and new ideas about how to raise funds locally and you might be just who we are looking for. If you feel you have the kind of local knowledge and organisational skills it takes to help us raise funds for our work, contact us at email@example.com Getting your feedback if we have supported you is a great and easy way to support what we do. It’s only by being able to talk about the difference we have made to your life that we can demonstrate that having a local carer support service is needed for the future. If you think we can make improvements to our services, we really need to hear from you as well, so that we can make changes to ensure that we get better at what we do. If you have something to tell us, whether good or not so good, get in touch with us.
