Groups’ Coordinator

Joyce Smith has been combining the role of Groups’ Coordinator with her original role of Assistance Office for some time and has done an excellent job. However, she would now like to relinquish the Groups’ Coordinator role and we are seeking a volunteer to replace her. I am delighted that Joyce will be continuing as Assistance Officer.

The Groups' Coordinator will be a Committee Member and Trustee; the role involves:

  • Being the first point of contact for Group Organisers (GOs).
  • Encouraging the development of new groups and assisting with initial stages of set up.
  • Distributing up-to-date information to GOs about running their groups legally and safely.
  • Supporting any groups that are struggling and helping to resolve any disputes.
  • Organising the GOs’ annual meeting/lunch.

If you think you might be able to help and would enjoy this rewarding role please contact me, or any Committee Member, for a chat.
