OPP OF THE DAY: New Branch Team Leader (Sandwell) – Kendall and Wall Charitable Trust

Kendall & Wall Charitable Trust is trying to combat loneliness and social isolation by organising outings for elderly and disabled people. We have a number of wheelchair accessible minibuses.

We are based in Lichfield but provide a service to a much wider area, including Sandwell.

We are planning to open a branch in West Bromwich to cover the Sandwell area. We are looking for an individual to head up the new branch. He/she will take the lead in setting up the new office, which may initially be in the volunteer’ own home.

With a great deal of support from our Lichfield office he/she will:

• establish the West Bromwich/Sandwell office

• recruit volunteers to drive minibuses and look after clients

• set up a database of volunteers and clients

• organise a programme of outings to start later this year

• publicise the new service amongst members of the public

• liaise with local care homes, housing associations and charitable groups

Kendall & Wall Charitable Trust will fund the setting up of the new branch and will provide a minibus but it is anticipated that the branch will become self-funding after a year or two.

The volunteer leader must :

• be enthusiastic

• have lots of energy,

• have good leadership skills

• have experience of working in the voluntary sector
