New Romney, Kent
Job description

Romney Marsh Day Centre are seeking 2 Trustees as a major part of our Strategic Plan of Development for services to older people on the Romney Marsh. Applicants are sought from any type of business or organisation where experience can be passed on to help us with our aims, and the minimum age is 18 but there is no maximum age. Previous experience at Board level is preferred but is not as essential as a passion to support older people in our community. Training in how to fulfil the role is provided. RMDC has been in New Romney for some 30 years, and is based in Sunflower House. We have a purpose-built building in the Centre of New Romney and we offer a Day centre and local community meals on wheels, in addition to other support and care services. The building also is the home of other outside services for older people and also an NHS hub for local GP’s, and other NHS consultants. To plan for future requirements of older people and to secure funds for these plans, we seek to replace long serving retired Trustees for 2019. With new Volunteer Trustees to bring business experience to the Board, we can expedite our plans sooner rather than later. There are 4 Board Meetings in a year and some preparation and reading is required. If you are able to help with special tasks as they arise in between meetings, that would be appreciated. Currently meetings are held to fit in the free time of all Trustees and are late afternoon or evenings.


Information regarding the role of the Trustee and/or a chat with a Trustee to find out more information can be arranged prior to your application. Contact our Chairman.
