Volunteer Trustee

  • VO89611
  • Board/trustee role


Description

Baby Steps 20+ are seeking volunteer Trustees to support the work of the social enterprise. Trustees have responsibility to oversee the work of the project, decide on the strategic direction of the organisation, and ensure that the service provided is of the highest standard. Trustees meet monthly, and occasionally if required, more often. The team are friendly and welcoming and would welcome volunteers with experience in strategic planning, disability, recycling, social enterprise, or community engagement.

Baby Steps 20+ offers paid employment opportunities to adults with a range of disabilities. From our social enterprise in Kirk Wynd in Falkirk, we receive donations of preloved baby equipment, which is then refurbished to a high standard to benefit local people. Our 3 core aims include: supporting local families, many of whom experience poverty, creating employment to those furthest from paid work due to disability, and diverting waste from landfill.

We currently meet monthly on Zoom but we hope to soon begin meetings in person. We are looking for people who have the time to spare to get to know and understand our ambitions, and who then will work with other trustees, to provide a strategic overview and guidance to operational staff.
