Volunteer Chairperson for Remap North East Wales

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the North East Wales Group of Remap, a registered charity that designs, builds and adapts special equipment for people with disabilities. This tailor-made equipment helps people with disabilities to carry out essential daily tasks without having to ask for help or it helps them to take part in leisure activities or sports that would otherwise have been difficult or impossible. Our service is delivered entirely by volunteers and is provided free of charge to our clients in Flintshire, Denbighshire, Wrexham and Conwy.

We are seeking a chairperson to lead our meetings and to be the voice of Remap in the local community. The ideal candidate will have some experience of practical work (for example, joinery, engineering or similar) or of working with people with disabilities and will be happy speaking with groups of health and social care professionals and clients. In the area we cover, there are more than 70,000 people with disabilities and we need to make sure that these people know of our service and how to seek help from us. If you feel that your background is suitable, we would be really pleased to hear from you.

The chairperson will be free to devote their time to publicising our service to potential users and recruiting further volunteers to deliver this service, although, in future years, there will be the need for fundraising activities to be organised when our current funds run low. Any relevant expenses incurred by the chairperson will be refunded.

Remap North East Wales is part of the national Remap organisation, a registered charity (registration number 1137666). Examples of Remap’s work are shown on our web pages at www.remap.org.uk .

We welcome applications from all sectors of the community.

Voluntary opportunity for Veterans Advisory and Pensions Committee (VAPC)

Vacancy Details

veterans-uk

Veterans UK (formerly the Veterans Agency and War Pensions Agency) are a Department of the Ministry of Defence which provides essential support services to the armed forces and veterans including:

  • allowances
  • pensions
  • compensation payments to those injured or bereaved through service
  • 1 to 1 veterans welfare support

The Veterans Advisory & Pensions Committee (VAPC) is an independent body which acts as a bridge to:

– act as advocates for implementing the Armed Forces Covenant and associated measures at a local level.
– advise and guide UK Veterans of their rights and where to turn in the complex world of government pensions and other allowances.
listen to complaints when things go wrong and, where we can, help to sort them out.

– assist Veterans in obtaining help from the appropriate ex-service charity or government department.

I am the Focal Point within the Veterans UK tasked with assisting the VAPCs with recruitment issues. VAPC Chairmen and Members are Public appointments approved by the Minister for Defence Veterans, Reserves  and Personnel. The posts are voluntary but Travelling expenses and loss of earnings are payable. For those interested in applying for the roles this is a fantastic opportunity to play a central role in promoting the interests and welfare of Veterans and their families.

The posts are currently being advertised on both the Public Appointments and the Cabinet Office websites and will close on 15 May 2015. However, it is in the interests of each Committee to advertise as widely as possible in order attract a range of candidates from a variety of different backgrounds which is why I would be grateful for your assistance in publicising these locally. Maybe your Armed Forces Community Covenant Boards/Champions would be able to assist. If you could also forward the adverts to any of your acquaintances (please see links below) who you think may be interested and who would fit the person specification that would be helpful.
