Volunteering with ASCEND
Are you looking for a rewarding and challenging volunteer post?
Would you like to work as part of a team helping to make a difference in your community?
ASCEND is currently looking for a Treasurer.
ASCEND is an amazing project at All Saintsí in South Oxhey. It has been changing lives for over 21 years and continues to be a lifeline for many hundreds of people every year. We offer many types of training and support including adult literacy and numeracy, IT and computer skills, English for speakers of other languages, counselling, a weekly job club and careers advice. We work with those with mental health issues and people with complex life issues. We work closely with HertsMind Network and other agencies to support adults in one of the most deprived parishes in the diocese. We also have an allotment project that works with vulnerable adults. We are seeking to find someone with the skills to take over the work of our treasurer. It would involve about 4-6 hours a week and we could pay an honorarium. The treasurer also attends our monthly management meetings. Can you help us... or do you know someone who could help us? If you think you might like to help and would like to discuss the work please contact Canon Pam Wise on 020 8421 5949 or email email@example.com
