Voluntary
Job description

KMHCF is a small charity which acts as the collective voice to represent the views and concerns of Mental Health Carers in the Royal Borough of Kingston. We are recognised in this campaigning role by statutory services who engage us as active members of relevant committees and strategy groups, and we also partner with other relevant third-sector organisations.

 

We assist individual Carers with advice, guidance and support.

 

We are keen to further develop our service and, for this, we invite a volunteer with financial experience to help us achieve this. Whilst KMHCF is fully-funded for its present activities, we will look to the Treasurer to guide us towards funding opportunities for future expansion, and to take the lead on the application processes.

 

Our financial activity is very low at the moment, but you would need to maintain financial control and ensure we comply with our legal responsibilities as a Registered Charity.

 

It would be good if you have some awareness of Mental Health yourself, but this is not essential. Most of all, you should have the enthusiasm to serve Carers who can often feel isolated and bewildered.

 

The Treasurer would be one of our Management Committee (Trustees) which meets about every two months on a mid-week evening. Otherwise, the role is home-based. However, we welcome offers to attend other meetings to represent the Forum or to take responsibility for activities, as they feel able.

 

If you have the drive to make a real difference for Carers, please contact us for an informal discussion as a first step towards joining us.
