Fundraising volunteers - currently closed to applications

Our fundraising volunteers are vital to ensuring we can raise the funds we need to maintain the delivery of our services, as well as to ensuring that as many women and girls as possible know how to access them.  We are looking for proactive women able to assist with OSARCC-organised events, as well as plan and run their own events in conjunction with the staff team.  Fundraising volunteers must also be able to attend our fundraising sub group which meets every other month on a Wednesday evening.  Hours are flexible and the role can be tailored to fit around your other commitments.

 

Admin volunteers - currently closed to applications

We sometimes have space for volunteers who wish to support our administrative work, either with ongoing tasks or discrete projects.

 

Trustees - currently closed to applications

Trustees oversee OSARCC's work and help ensure we meet our statutory obligations, as well as continue with our strategic growth.
