Charity registered in Scotland SC015405
Spinal Injuries Scotland have listened to our membership and with the support of the National Lottery, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding our services in the Dumfries and Galloway area for Peer Support.
Our Peer Support Program is based on the recognition that there is no better person to support someone with a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and their friends and families than someone who has been down a similar path.
We are looking for someone who is willing to take the lead and attend our NHS Clinics in Dumfries & Galloway and arrange ’Coffee meet-ups’ to bring people with a SCI together. The post will require 20 hours a week dedicated to the job.
Training will be provided.
For more information please read the job description or contact the office on 0141 427 7686
Spinal Injuries Scotland (SIS) is a national voluntary organisation that exists to support patients and members who suffer from Spinal Cord Injured (SCI) or a Neurological Spinal Cord Condition, their relatives, friends and carers. Our charitable aim is ‘the advancement to health’.
We are looking for 2 or 3 individuals to join our Board of Trustees and help guide our organisation as it moves forward into what we see as a new and exciting phase. We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and dynamic individuals with experience of operations, fundraising, volunteer support, HR, marketing, communications and/or finance to our Board of Trustees.
Applicants will have the experience and skills to ensure that the charity continues to develop and provide high quality long term services. As a Trustee, you will be required to contribute to the governance of the organisation including attendance at regular board meetings and the AGM.
The Board now meet approximately every 6 weeks.
Spinal Injuries Scotland are particularly keen to receive applications from individuals with personal experience of, or connection to spinal cord injury, but it’s not an essential requirement. A full induction will be given.
The position would be for a trial period, initially for 6 months, to see if this would be a fit for both you and for SIS. In terms of commitment we would expect you to be able to spend at least 5 hours a month serving as a Trustee for a period of at least 2 years.
Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check will be required to be carried out for the role.
Please see the attached Role Description and Personal Specification.
