Trustees Needed
 
Epsom Riding for the Disabled began in 1969 in a small field in Epsom with four volunteers and a Shetland pony called Bubbles.  Since then we have grown into a thriving charity providing riding for therapy, fun and achievement for over 300 riders.  Today we have a herd of 16 horses and ponies and a team of over 200 volunteers.  We are entirely run by volunteers with no paid staff.

2018 marks an important year in our development.  As we approach our 50th anniversary in 2019 we have decided to become a new CIO to take us forward into the future.  We have exciting plans including the development of a  competition class indoor riding school arena which will help us to improve the experience of all our riders and provide more opportunities for both exiting and new riders.  

To assist us in this development we are looking for new trustees for the CIO who have an enthusiam and passion to help us move forward.  You don’t need to know anything about horses, just have a desire to help a thriving local charity to grow further.  We are run entirely by volunteers so Trustees need to have a hands on approach and work with other volunteers to achieve our aims.  Good communication and people skills are a necessity. In particular we are looking for:

• A Secretary who would be an officer of the charity, along with the Chair and Treasurer with a focus on governance and compliance.

 • A trustee with accountancy skills to help us develop our finance function and drive the implementation of financial IT solutions.

• A trustee to take on responsibility for the oversight of property development and maintenance.  

Job descriptions for each of the roles are below. If you are interested in any of the roles please email epsomrda@outlook.com by 15 June 2018 for more information.
