Women’s Support Service - Angus Outreach
The Women's Support Service provides a trauma informed support to survivors in a one to one and group setting. We offer emotional and practical support on a one to one basis, by telephone, letter, email, or group work.
Women are empowered to speak about their abuse in a safe, confidential environment. We provide structured support groups, a creative group, and telephone and crisis support. We also offer a complimentary therapy service to women engaging in the service.
WRASAC also works in a variety of ways to improve service provision to all survivors regardless of where they may present for support. We participate in many partnerships across Dundee and Angus, Scotland and even across Europe.
Most importantly, though, we are in the business of working within our communities to change attitudes so we can, in the longer term, prevent and reduce sexual violence from happening in the first place.
WRASAC is a well-established charity providing specialist trauma informed support to survivors of sexual violence, abuse and exploitation across Dundee and Angus. We are looking to recruit:
- Treasurer to the Board
We have been through an exciting period of innovative change that has, for example, seen the development of new services, including our Dundee and Angus Young Survivors (DAYS) project that is open to all young survivors aged 11-18, regardless of their gender.
As a Trustee we feel sure that you will find it both a rewarding and enjoyable experience. We are particularly keen to hear from people who have the following experience:
- Financial Management
- Public Relations / Marketing
- Charity Law
We would also welcome applications from people with a background in accountancy who would be interested in the role of Treasurer to the Board.
Ideal applicants will have proven experience at Executive or Board level and have an interest in both the charity sector and the future direction of palliative care – becoming a member of our Board of Trustees will provide you with an opportunity to share your skill base and make a valuable contribution to our strategic plans and direction.
