The Young Women’s Movement is looking for one trustee from anywhere in Scotland to join our Board of Trustees this autumn. In their own words, here’s a message from our current Board (Rachel, Kate, Liz, Lipa, Molly, Briana, Cat, Mridul) …
I joined the board because I wanted a seat at the table where my contributions and opinions would be valued but also be taken on an actionable basis. The YWCA board has enabled me to experience conversations and topics I had not previously ventured into, that experience is invaluable. When I look at the board I see a better reflection of the kind of sisterhood I want to see more in society and having that seat is a big responsibility but a privilege.
… Do you share our belief that every young woman can shape their journey? Do you feel strongly the voices of all women in Scotland are important? Do you want to help young women feel valued, learn, grow and fulfil their potential? If you share our passion, then we want you.

CAN YOU HELP US CHANGE LIVES?
The Larder is a fast growing innovative social enterprise working to reduce the impact of poverty by supporting the most disadvantaged young people (and some adults) into work and reducing hunger by providing access to hot nutritious meals with dignity.
We believe in the transformational nature of food, so every one of our trainees learns to cook, a skill for life that is also transferable to the hospitality sector. We also operate 4 cafes that are based in communities across West Lothian. We also believe that sometimes for some children and young people, school is not the best place for positive learning experiences so we use our cafes as training hubs and work with school to provide vocational learning spaces for young people who are struggling to maintain a mainstream education place. On a weekly basis they gain real life work experience whilst gaining qualifications and building their confidence. Our young people cook the food that we sell in our cafes whilst being supported by a dedicated and experienced staff team.
This is an exciting time to be part of The Larder as we are about to install a second training kitchen at our base in Livingston and have a 5 year plan to have our own bespoke space to integrate all of our services into a modern food hub fit for 21st century learning and food enterprise.
We are looking for a chair person who understands the complex nature of balancing charitable aims with enterprise trading. Someone who can work with the senior staff member to support and develop the board and the staff team so that together we build a resilient and sustainable organisation that changes lives through food.
The time commitment per year is 6 to 8 board meetings and a maximum of 4 meetings with the senior member of staff.
