Care & Repairs Seeks New Trustees

Do you have a strategic perspective or commercial experience? Do you offer marketing, fundraising, HR or legal skills? 

Would you get satisfaction from helping direct a local charity? 

Our activities

Manchester Care & Repair provides award-winning quality services to help older and disabled people to live safely at home. Through a team of staff and volunteers we provide a handyperson service and give support with using building contractors and claiming welfare benefits. We work with three local authorities and the NHS and do fund-raising and enterprise. We work in a fast-changing policy environment and have challenging future plans.

Your skills

We are aiming to broaden the networks and experience of the Board as we develop our social enterprise and fundraising activities. We also wish to reflect the diversity of our users and staff in our Board, and currently have under-representation of BME backgrounds and disability at Board level.

What’s involved?

You will contribute to the main Board meeting (6 times a year, early evening in the Hulme/Old Trafford area) and to task groups addressing current issues.  In return we offer conferences, training, out-of pocket expenses and the opportunity to develop your skills and experience with an active Board.
