Our ambition is to both increase the number of adapted cycle and Pedal Away programmes across the UK whilst refining our service offering to those hubs, extending their reach in to different communities and improving their sustainability.
We do this through the provision of over 50 ‘Wheels for All’ cycling hubs which provide safe access to adapted cycles as well as trained support alongside the Pedal Away programme enabling people to ride on two wheels regardless of age, ability or experience.
As we continue to grow we are always interested to hear from skilled, enthusiastic people who share our vision of cycling for everyone and are interested in voluntary roles with the Charity. This includes fulfilling roles on our Board of Trustees. Our trustees are responsible for the governance of the charity, but as a small organisation they are also hands-on and willing to get involved.
We are especially interested to hear from candidates who could fulfil the **role of Treasurer, preferably ACA qualified, but if you think you have something special to offer the current team, then please let us know.
As a Trustee you will:
• Receive induction, training and reimbursable expenses
• Have the opportunity to drive the scaling of our charity
• Develop new skills and networks
• Improve the health and wellbeing of people and communities
The expected time commitment is 8 evening Board meetings a year either in person in Warrington, Cheshire or via a media link, and some additional hours per month on special projects in line with your skills.
