Lanarkshire Links has vacancies on our Management Committee (Board of Charity Trustees). The Management Committee consists of 4 office bearers and up to 10 other members.
We are looking to recruit volunteer Trustees to build on the Charity’s success to date and help steer it towards its future goals. You will work alongside the rest of the Committee and staff to continue to raise the profile of the organisation whilst ensuring that an effective business strategy and financial safeguards are in place for the charity (it is recognised that day to day work is devolved to the Charity’s staff).
Full membership of Lanarkshire Links is open to anyone aged 16 and over with the experience of mental health illness personally or as a carer; at present or in the past.
Associate membership is open to you if you have a specific interest in the work that we do. Associate members do not have voting rights.
The Board of Trustees is supported by one standing sub-committee remitted to scrutinise Finance, Audit, and Resources. We have two vacancies on our Business & Development Sub-committee. The sub-committee may co-opt to its membership people whose expertise is considered to be of benefit to them. Co-opted members of standing or sub-committees need not be full members of the organisation.
Management Committee meetings are held every 6 weeks (approximately) in the Dalziel Building, 7 Scott Street, Motherwell, ML1 1PN where the Charity has its offices.
Whilst the roles are voluntary, training will be provided and reasonable travel expenses offered.
Details of our work are available on the website www.lanarkshirelinks.org.uk
It is an exciting time for the Charity as we look forward to involvement in the implementation phase of the new Lanarkshire Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy (2019 – 2014) ‘Getting It Right For Every Person’
