Committee volunteers

What is a committee volunteer?

The Welcome Centre is governed by a Board of Trustees which provides leadership and direction. The Board has three sub-groups.   All trustees and most people who serve on the committees are full members and active supporters of the charity and are approved by the Board.   All trustees normally serve on a sub-group before they can be elected to the Board.

Our members say they enjoy being involved because:

  • We have a clear mission and use our limited resources well

  • We are a team of committed people who care about what we do

  • We give practical help to people in real need when they have nowhere else to turn

  • They find that personal development in a role of this kind enhances their career.

The Sub group structure

There are 3 subgroups:

  1. Finance and Operations, which covers financial planning and control, budgeting, operational logistics and developments, accommodation, health and safety and IT and communications.

  2. Marketing, which looks after income generation for the Welcome Centre through publicity and public relations, fund-raising, supporter development and donations of all kinds

  3. Human Resources and Volunteering, which deals with all aspects of HR (policies, procedures, recruitment, training, appraisal etc.) and volunteering (ensuring that we have sufficient suitable volunteers and that they gain from working with us)

If you are interested in becoming a member of one of these committees please contact the Chair of the Board, Jeanne Watson, either by email:  [email protected]gmail.com more information.
