Description

The Linda Tremble Foundation is seeking volunteer Board members to join an existing team of trustees in a forward looking and inclusive organisation. We are looking for dynamic individuals to join the Board of Directors in supporting the strategic direction and development of the organisation to provide support to people struggling with eating disorders and their families and carers’. If you are interested in improving mental health and wellbeing then this would be a rewarding and exciting opportunity. The most important thing for our charity, and the entire reason for our existence, is helping people currently facing challenges with eating disorders to recover, and at the same time to support their families and carers. We can support them in the community and help to provide early intervention as well as supporting those who need support over the longer term, which can be for several years or longer. We have a relatively small but close knit team of trustees and volunteers, having recently recruited and trained several new facilitators, We recruited our first member of staff last November to the role of Development Manager. Last year the charity supported and facilitated peer to peer groups in Kirkcaldy, Glasgow, Forth Valley and Perth. The charity seeks to expand our services through the provision of peer support groups in up to two other areas of Scotland. This is an exciting and dynamic time for us and our board as we move into what potentially could be our busiest year ever. The Linda Tremble Foundation is interested in hearing from individuals who share our vision and could help us provide and build confidence, self-esteem, self-belief and support the journey to recovery.

Organisation aims and objectives

The Linda Tremble Foundation's vision is to create support groups within Scotland to help individuals and families affected by eating disorders along with promoting early intervention as the key to recovery. We deliver community peer-to-peer support groups. Our group welcomes all those affected by an eating disorder in some way, whether it is personally or as a friend, carer or loved one, all are welcome.
