Volunteer Treasurer sought by the Stirling Area Access Panel. This small but committed charity works quietly but persistently to bring about improvement that makes it easier for everyone to access local facilities and services.
Are you looking to put your financial management skills and experience to good use? Do you have an interest in access, inclusive design or disability-related issues? Or would you simply like to make a difference and give back to the local community?
Stirling Area Access Panel (SAAP) is seeking a Treasurer to help achieve greater access and inclusion across the local area. The charity plays an important role in checking, guiding and advising on issues connected to physical access and wider social inclusion.
SAAP is a SCIO and has been operating since 2007 and everyone involved is a volunteer. Membership of SAAP is open to all. The charity is led by a Board of (currently) four Trustees.
