ICARE Stroke Rehabilitation Day Centre
The ICARE Day Centre Trust (“ICARE”) is a small local charity running a day centre providing rehabilitation for people who have had a stroke.
The Centre is in Green Street Green, Orpington welcoming up to 20 clients each day. A dedicated team of staff and volunteers create a friendly environment where, through speech therapy and physiotherapy, social and creative activities, and mutual support and friendship, we aim to help our clients reintegrate into society. We also provide support for their carers.
The Trustees have overall responsibility for our activities, while a Centre Manager looks after day to day operations. ICARE is incorporated as company for operational purposes, so Trustees also act as Directors of the company. All Trustees are volunteers.
We are looking for someone to join the Board of Trustees as Treasurer from April 2020. This is an important role, preparing budgets, keeping track of ICARE’s finances, making sure that we maintain high financial standards, follow sound procedures and comply with the relevant statutory requirements. As a member of the Board, the Treasurer will also contribute to the general oversight of the charity.
The Treasurer does not have to be an accountant but must be comfortable dealing with financial matters and maintaining sound financial procedures. We have a computer based accounting system. The Treasurer will need to be able to use Excel spreadsheets, as well as standard software such as Word and email, and will need to work closely with the Centre Manager and Chair/Company Secretary. Being Treasurer will involve a commitment of probably 2 – 3 days a month, including both the regular involvement with the financial aspects of the charity and the quarterly Board meetings. It will be a very varied, interesting and worthwhile role, supporting our work here at the Centre.
