Lewes District Churches HOMELINK
Lewes District Churches HOMELINK is seeking to recruit a trustee who would act as the charity’s Honorary Treasurer.
HOMELINK was set up in the late 1990s in response to rapidly increasing homelessness, to help people who are homeless, or threatened with homelessness, by organising a local interest-free rent deposit scheme.
Working with Lewes District Council (LDC) and other agencies we offer interest-free loans to cover the deposit and rent in advance, to help those who LDC has no duty to house into private rented accommodation.
We currently have 11 Trustees with a varied range of skills and experience, 5 members of staff (part-time) and are supported by a group of dedicated volunteers. Please visit our website to find out more about us – https://leweshomelink.org.uk/.
As a full member of the Board of Trustees, the Treasurer acts as the Board’s principal financial adviser, and ensures that accurate and up-to-date financial records are maintained. This role is fully supported by a part-time (paid) financial assistant/bookkeeper.
Our aim is for the next Treasurer to be appointed as a trustee in the Spring, to allow plenty of time for handover and to get to know the workings of HOMELINK.
