Volunteer vacancy - Secretary to the Board

The Secretary to the Board supports the Trustee Board with minutes at meetings and tracking follow up items. Prior to meetings, the Secretary to the Board collates and distributes the Board papers and reports to be distributed to the Trustees. Attendance at meetings, which are generally bi-monthly, can be in person or on-line.

As is the case for our Trustees, this is volunteer position. It is an administrative role and does not include the responsibility of being the Company Secretary

Become a trustee

Salford Loaves & Fishes’ Board of Trustees are responsible for the charity’s strategy and financial security. They are legally accountable for the organisation. You can see our profile on the Charity Commission’s website here.

The current trustee board is made up of individuals of various backgrounds and professions who bring their diverse skills to advise and support the organisation and guide its development, adapting to the needs of our community. Trustees with Legal or Financial Accounting background particularly welcome, however applicants from other backgrounds welcome as more than one Trustee will be appointed.

All our Trustees are volunteers and as such are unpaid. There are 6 Full Board Trustee Meetings per year plus others when required. There are also optional Working Groups. Currently meetings are hybrid and Trustees can choose whether to attend in person or on-line.  

As we work with Vulnerable Adults, this post is subject to a DBS check.

Our beginnings go back to the Salford Cathedral Drop-in Centre following the closure of which Salford Loaves and Fishes was formed to carry on this valuable work with homeless and vulnerable people. Salford Loaves and Fishes teamed up with Manchester City Mission, who, after consultation with the local community, identified a need in the local area for a drop-in centre offering provision for homeless and vulnerable people.  In February 2007, Salford Loaves and Fishes and Manchester City Mission formed a collaborative working relationship and launched the Windsor Drop-in Centre which continued until April 2016.

Salford Loaves and Fishes now operate in our newly renovated building located on Paddington Close in the heart of residential and commercial Salford. As an organisation we rely on the support of a number of corporate benefactors and tremendous support from private individuals.

Our Christian ethos ensures an unconditionally positive, accepting and non-judgmental approach and strives to support clients in reaching their full potential. Our centre is open to people of all faiths or none and strives to be inclusive.
