DASH Trustees Wanted
Since 1978, DASH has been organising a variety of leisure schemes for disabled children and young people within the county of Ceredigion. We do this so that local disabled children and their families can have a better quality of life with access to a wide choice of leisure facilities and opportunities. Parents and carers get time to recharge their batteries and disabled children and young people get time of their own for personal, social and creative development in a welcoming and fun environment.
We are currently looking for a new Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees to help guide and advise us on financial concerns. We have a dedicated Finance Officer and so the role of Treasurer is to help oversee the financial work of our Charity, not to be involved in the Day to Day running. The successful person will need to be able to attend our on going Trustee meetings as well as presenting at our AGM. In total this means a commitment of approximately 5 meetings a year. In addition there may be adhoc meetings with the Chair/Finance Officer/Manager. We are looking for someone with a passion for ensuring high quality services are given to children with disabilities and their families, as well as experience of Financial Controls –ie an Accountant or similar.
Preferably we would like someone with an understanding of Charity finance, pensions and legal requirements but this is not essential. Further information/conversation can be through either the Manager or Chair of the trustees.
As a trustee of DASH you will use your skills and knowledge to provide guidance and recommendations for growing our services and increasing the benefits provided to children with disabilities and their families in Ceredigion.
The successful person will need to be able to attend our ongoing Trustee meetings. In total this means a commitment of approx. 7 meetings a year. In addition, there may be adhoc meetings with the Chair/Finance Officer/Manager. We are looking for someone with a passion for ensuring high quality services are given to children with disabilities and their families
