New secretary needed – now!                          

A great job opportunity for the right kind of person is offered for the right person. Please read more as it may be you! SDN is looking to recruit an honorary Secretary; this is a key voluntary position for a current or new/potential member.

The role involves attending monthly management committee meetings, which are held in or near Shrewsbury; booking venues for meetings across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin; attending quarterly Members’ Meetings; emailing information such as agendas and minutes to members prior to the Members’ Meetings; and emailing details of forthcoming events to our membership. It is important that you are a team player with good communication skills as apart from emailing members/contacts there will be times when you will need to contact by telephone.

If the role appeals to you and is within your abilities please email or call the SDN chair, Sonia Roberts, on 07930 397 270

You will be making a major contribution to the continuing growth and influence of a “powerful voice” in Shropshire on behalf of the disability community.

However, if you think you would like to do most of the job but doubt your ability to take minutes please still apply because alternative arrangements can be made for that task.

Since its foundation in 2008 SDN has grown as the “Voice” for disability across the county of Shropshire. It appeared on the scene just in time – in the past five years the disabled have been put under increasing economic and political pressure, stigmatised and increasingly marginalised in society. Without SDN and other organisations like it around the country, there would be few collective voices to represent the disabled. So please think about what you can offer. It’s important!

So what can you get from being a Volunteer? Increased Confidence, meet new  and make new friends, raised self esteem by knowing you are helping a worthy organisation that you belong to or are joining, learning more about us and sharing with others important information and more……..
