Summary

Dursley Open Door Club are looking for a Secretary to support the running of their thriving social club for adults with learning disabilities.

Detailed description

Dursley Open Door Club has just celebrated its 40th Anniversary. During this time it has provided an invaluable support network to the adults who attend, giving them the opportunity to meet new people, create lasting friendships and have lots of fun!


Club nights are held on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 - 9.00 and provide a range of activities such as table tennis, cards, darts, art and craft and various music and dance events.


We also take members to local shows, have an annual boat trip, go sailing and organise a day trip to see local places of interest.


As well as supporting on club nights and outings, the role of Secretary involves the following tasks:

  • Act as one of club trustees.
  • Maintain up-to-date records for club members and helpers.
  • Take minutes of club meetings (desirable)
  • Retain records of club meetings.
  • Handle correspondence.
  • Hold copies of all club policies and ensure that helpers are aware of them.
  • Notify members and volunteers of upcoming events.


All of our members and volunteers count Tuesday evenings as one of the highlights of their week, and we would love you to join us.


As a part of this role you will need to provide suitable references and complete a DBS check.
