TALK


Trustee vacancy with TALK SURREY

TALK SURREY is a charity working with people who have speech and communication difficulties (aphasia) as a result of a stroke.

 

We operate 5 workshop groups throughout Surrey Guildford (2), Knaphill, Ashford and Walton.   The groups meet weekly during termtime organising quizzes, entertainment and visits from therapeutic speakers.   The activities allow the volunteers to work closely with the recoverers to rebuild their confidence and find alternative means of communication.   Home visiting volunteers also work with those recoverers for whom travel is difficult.

 

We are looking for Trustees to join our present Board.   There are 6 committee meetings per year held in Guildford and individual expertise/interest would be welcome.   The charity is supported financially by SCC, local councils and NHS Trust funding currently.   Trustees involvement in future planning would be welcomed.

 

TALK is a medium sized charity based in Surrey supporting 80 recoverers and 80 volunteers.   Two part time members of staff including a Coordinator and PR/Fundraising Assistant.

This could be a useful addition to a CV and a chance to work with a very dedicated group of people.
