When We Need You
From 20/06/2012 onwards
At the heart of RESULTS is our network of volunteer advocates who work together in local groups to lobby decision-makers, raise awareness and campaign to make ending poverty a political priority. We would like to expand our network further and are looking for a group leader to take over the running of our Glasgow group. We have an existing group in Glasgow that has been actively campaigning for a number of years but the group leader has recently left and we are looking for someone to come and take their place. Group leaders are responsible for organising and chairing group meetings, contacting other volunteers and reporting back to the RESULTS office on campaign results. HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? You should contact us using the contact details or complete the REGISTER your INTEREST form. If you have not heard from us within 10 working days, please contact the volunteer centre.
About RESULTS UK
RESULTS is an International advocacy organisation working to create the public and political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. Advocates work together in local groups to learn about and share information on development issues and campaigns. RESULTS gives advocates the tools they need to take effective action to speak out in favour of anti-poverty measures that really work.
Skills & Experience
Just an interest in the issues.
RESULTS group meetings either take place in the group leaders home if they are happy for that to happen or they can be arranged to take place in local community spaces. RESULTS will help find and will pay for these spaces.
We don't have capacity to CRB volunteers.
Training and Induction Details
Ongoing group training and one on one with RESULTS staff.
