Business/Management/Committee/Trustee



ASD Family Help is a user led local charity to support children and families affected by autism in Wokingham Borough. There are looking to recruit a new Chairman. The Chair’s role is to ensure the Committee operates within the Constitution and fulfils its purpose; to lead and support the team; to represent ASD Family Help as appropriate and to set the agenda and chair meetings. The volunteer must have a sound knowledge of autism and have previous experience of the charity sector and related networks including social services. Time commitment averages around 10 hours per month, which is made up of committee meetings, meetings with the Operations Manager and dealing with general admin/emails. For a full description or to discuss this role in more detail, please contact the Wokingham Volunteer Centre.  

Wokingham United Charities run the Westende almshouses which are flats in central Wokingham. The 27 flats are home to local, mainly elderly people, who have been in either financial or social need. They are looking for a volunteer to help manage their building work. They have reliable contractors for plumbing, heating, electrical and building work, but they need briefing, and their work checked on completion. There is a resident warden who is available for regular supervision of contractors, but the person taking this role will inevitably have to be available sometimes during working hours. They are a small and friendly team that meet about six times a year, attend occasional coffee mornings with the residents and report to trustees on all significant items. We do quite a lot by email. The role would suit someone that has experience of project management and/or building work.

Reading and District Macular Society assists people with macular degeneration (sight loss) by organising events and social activities that offer opportunities to meet others and share experiences. They are looking for new committee members to attend their meetings which take place on a Friday morning six times a year at the Berkshire Vision in Reading. They would like someone who can be passionate about what the charity do and bring fresh ideas to the group.
