Enrych Swindon –
I wasn’t sure what I could contribute to Enrych, a charity which enables people with disabilities to enjoy a social life, but I met the other trustees and found my worries were unfounded. Charities need a business perspective when setting strategy and for particular areas of expertise eg HR, IT, social media. In my day job, I am commercially focussed and have found I can contribute by helping the charity to be more externally focussed and achieve more sustainability. I’ve also contributed my network within the business world – helpful for fundraising and recruiting volunteers.
This has been a very exciting opportunity!
