Job Description

Are you interested in supporting a growing charity, and using your professional experience and leadership skills to have a real impact on your community?

MD Support Centre is on a mission to transform access to physical therapies for people with muscular dystrophy (MD) in the Midlands – and we are looking to recruit a new voluntary treasurer to join our Board of Trustees and enhance the strategic and financial oversight of our journey.

Introduction and context

Established in 2012, Muscular Dystrophy Support Centre (MDSC) was set up and is led by people with muscular dystrophy (pwMD) and their families. Our current Board of Trustees all either have muscular dystrophy, or have a family member with muscular dystrophy. Our aim is to transform access to specialist physiotherapy for all pwMD (18+) in the Midlands region who need it.  From our Centre in Coventry, and with satellite clinics in Birmingham and Loughborough, we support 400+ pwMD, primarily by providing specialist physical therapies (physiotherapy, osteopathy and complementary therapies) on a long-term basis.  We are the only organisation in the Midlands region to do so, and one of only two in the UK. 

In September 2019, we secured a five-year grant from the National Lottery Community Fund to build a platform for expansion to meet significant demand throughout the Midlands and beyond. Having until recently been a wholly voluntary run organisation, we now have a core staff team - and the National Lottery funding supported us to enhance our organisational structure by recruiting an Executive Director and other key management roles to build organisational sustainability. By 2025 we plan to be supporting over 1,100 pwMD and provide therapy at a further three satellite clinics in the Black Country, Worcestershire and Northants.

We are looking to appoint a new treasurer at this exciting time in our organisation’s development following the recent retirement of our previous treasurer. We are looking for a qualified accountant (CCAB) with experience in financial management, financial reporting and systems of internal financial control.
