Access Plymouth is a transport charity for the elderly and disabled. We use buses, cars and mobility equipment to help people get out and about in Plymouth. Our services help those who struggle to access public transport retain their independance through trips to doctors, dentists, hairdressers as well as social visits etc. One of the biggest problems for the elderly is social isolation and lonliness and we support people who want to remain in their own homes as long as possible. We currently have a contract with Plymouth City Council who, along with Citybus and the Drake Circus shopping mall support us to provide these services.
We are looking to expand our work and need a Treasurer who is an acccountant. There is usually around three to four hours work a month as we have a Finance Officer who does the day to day finance work as well as a CEO who oversees finances. On top of this, you would need to attend our monthly Trustee meeting. We are looking for someone who can provide strategic support, checking annual budgets, check costings with new schemes and genrally provide financial support. The Treasurer will also be a Trustee who will serve on the board with the other trustees. We meet once a month - currently by Zoom.
This has been a tough year for the charity as Covid has meant that nearly all our clients have stayed at home. We survived because of support from the council and several grants. Our client base is now beginning to rejoin day to day life and we want to rebuild even better than we were before and provide this vital support lifeline.
