Lapidus Scotland is looking to appoint new committee members to support the next stage of our development.
Lapidus Scotland’s committee members are vital supporters and advocates, helping create possibilities across all of our work. We now wish to invite between two and four new members to join our committee to support the next stage of our development.
There is no need to have previous experience of being a trustee. We hope to appoint someone who is enthusiastic about writing and wellbeing, ideally with skills and experience in fund-raising, healthcare, marketing or community engagement.
If you have skills in other areas, and have energy and enthusiasm for writing and wellbeing, we would still like to hear from you.
The committee meets up to eight times a year, and currently consists of five members. Since spring 2020 all meetings have taken place online. In future we plan to hold meetings mainly online, with some face-to-face.
Participation is unpaid but any expenses incurred (including, for example, child-care or travel) are fully covered.
Lapidus Scotland recognises its responsibility to support equality, diversity and inclusion. We welcome applicants of any gender, religion or belief, age, sexual orientation and from socio-economically deprived or working class backgrounds.
If you would like to get involved, please send a short statement outlining relevant experience, knowledge and suitability, in an email with the subject heading ‘BOARD’, by Thursday 21 April 2022 at 09:00.
You can also use this address to ask for more information.
Lapidus Scotland is an independently constituted voluntary association and is managed by a committee who have skills and experience in facilitating words for wellbeing. We are affiliated to Lapidus International, a membership organisation, and adhere to the same ethical code.
Our programmes offer a creative approach to supporting self-management of long-term conditions and can e.g. help with mild to moderate depression, isolation, dementia, recovery from stroke and other illnesses that impact on individual identity. Our facilitators work with statutory and voluntary organisations across a range of settings. We also offer networking and training events for wellbeing practitioners.
Lapidus Scotland’s activities are currently supported by a grant from Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership’s Well Being for Longer in Glasgow fund.
