There are SSAFA branches throughout the UK and overseas, each delivering support to serving personnel, veterans, and their families. Every branch has a team of volunteers who make this possible.
The Administrator Coordinator is a key member of the team, ensuring the smooth running of the branch and
supporting day to day operations. This role is at the heart of the branch, overseeing the group inbox, organising meetings, and liaising with volunteers and external stakeholders.
Do you enjoy multi-tasking and coordinating events? Is attention to detail one of your strengths? If so, we’d love to hear from you. You don’t need an Armed Forces background, just good organisation and IT skills.
Speyside Children’s Arts Festival is a one-day event filled with fantastic, creative activities for the whole family to take part in. There will be art, crafts, drumming, dance, singing and storytelling; young and old can even have a go at circus skills or try out flying on a trapeze!
The festival is organised by a group of local mums who felt that it would be great to bring this kind of event to Speyside so that all the families here wouldn’t have to travel so far to take part in things. It’s completely free and the day will be held in the grounds of Aberlour House, AB38 9LD
We are looking for volunteers to make this ambitious day happen - can you come and help us?
Duties range from site set up, putting up tents and gazebos, decorating the site, checking attendees in, registering people for bookable sessions, directing people to activities, assisting with creative activities, car park stewarding, directing traffic, litter picking, packing down at the end of the day, taking down tents and gazebos, packing away and site clean up.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to work as part of a team with the Agape Family Support Worker to provide a Sensory Play Group for children aged 0-3 years and parents/caregivers in the community. We hold Sensory Play Group Sessions everyday from Monday to Friday within Agape Sensory Hub.
You will help to prepare and set up sensory-based activities and tidy at the end of the Sensory Play Group session. You will offer a welcoming reception to children and parents/caregivers and assist with leading the Sensory Play Group by supporting participation during the session and helping to watch over the children's safety. You will also carry out administrative tasks including recording sign-in and debrief notes for the Sensory Play Group.
The Sensory Hub space is specially designed to allow parents/caregivers to ‘play’ alongside their children. Using senses to enjoy the world around them. This will improve health, wellbeing and attachment for all members of the family.
Charity Trusteeships can be incredibly rewarding as well as supporting personal and professional development. Along with your fellow Trustees and the Director of the organisation, you will set the long-term strategic direction of HSGNNL and provide advice and guidance to the other Trustees and the Senior Management Team in your specialist field where applicable. The Trustees ensure that performance is monitored and managed through internal controls and delegation and approve key strategies and policies to allow the organisation to achieve its objectives.
The Board of Trustees currently meets either online or in person every 6 weeks (early evening), although this is currently being reviewed. Trustees will also be asked to support sub-groups as required. The initial appointment is for a 3-year term with the opportunity for reappointment. Role of a Trustee - General
Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that HSGNNL achieves its core purpose. Whilst all involved in the work of HSGNNL, including staff, volunteers, and trustees, have a shared vision and passion of supporting families to be the best they can be, the Trustees have responsibility for the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that HSGNNL has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision. Just as important, they support and challenge the Senior Management Team to enable HSGNNL to grow and thrive, and through this, achieve our mission.
Trustees have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.
• Support and provide advice on HSGNNL’s purpose, vision, goals and activities.
• Provide challenge to the Director and Senior Management Team
• Approve operational strategies and policies and monitor and evaluate their implementation.
• Oversee HSGNNL’s financial plans and budgets and monitor and evaluate progress.
• Ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation.
• Ensure that key risks are being identified, monitored, and controlled effectively.
• Review and approve HSGNNL’s financial statements.
• Provide support and challenge to HSGNNL’s Director in the exercise of their delegated authority and affairs.
• Keep abreast of changes in HSGNNL’s operating environment.
• Contribute to regular reviews of HSGNNL’s own governance. Attend Board meetings, sub-group meetings and be adequately prepared to contribute to discussions.
• Use independent judgment, acting legally and in good faith to promote and protect HSGNNL’s interests, to the exclusion of their own personal and/or any third-party interests.
• Contribute to the broader promotion of HSGNNL’s objects, aims and reputation by applying your skills, expertise, knowledge, and contacts.
Could you help with delivering play, youth and community sessions locally in Moray and support the work of the Army Welfare Service? Volunteers are needed to help set up and tidy up before and after the sessions; help plan an evaluate the sessions and build professional, supportive relationships with children young people and families.
We are looking for welcoming and enthusiastic volunteer(s) to lead short health walks in Moray -- currently these gentle walks are based in Forres, Fochabers, Hopeman, Elgin, Cullen, Buckie, Lossiemouth, Dufftown, Rothes and Keith. It's sociable, relaxed, fun and flexible -- and there is great support for our volunteers.
Becoming a volunteer walk leader requires you to commit around an hour or so of your time weekly (but there is room for flexible dates!) and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paper work for the walk.
Health walks encourage people who have not exercised for a while, find walking boring, or lack confidence to join a walking group because they think they will not be able to keep up. Walks are free, short, low intensity, safe and social and are usually followed by a cup of tea or coffee and a chat!
Over the next year we plan to build upon our network of gentle exercise activities across the Moray region. To help us achieve this we are looking for friendly and supportive volunteers who enjoy walking, meeting new folk sharing the wide ranging health and well- being benefits of gentle physical activity.
Volunteers all receive Paths for All Walk Leader training to give them the skills and confidence to lead walks in your community. You will be encouraged to join a Health Walk and chat to a Health Walk leader before your training so that you have an idea of how it works on the ground.
Volunteer walk leaders receive on-going support from the local Health Walk co-ordinator, too
