Every registered charity in the UK must be governed by a Board of Trustees. Trustees can be almost anyone, they are members of the public who have been voted on to a committee to take responsibility for overseeing the effective running of the charity. This means they are responsible for ensuring it is financially sound, well run and delivers the charitable outcomes and goals that have been set.
Trustees must be 18 or over and must not be disqualified as a company director or have been convicted of an offence involving dishonesty, deception or animal cruelty/neglect.
In addition you need to become a member of the National RSPCA. Trustees are committed to the objectives of the RSPCA.
“To promote kindness and to prevent or supress cruelty to animals and to carry out all such acts as the RSPCA may consider to be conductive or incidental to the attainment of those objectives”
We welcome volunteers to help with socialising and grooming our cats. It is so rewarding to help cats who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or just unwanted.
Also, we would be delighted to hear from you if you could sponsor a cat pen at £5 a month. This will help our branch to continue taking in rescued felines most in need from the Worcestershire area.
It is Branch policy to a pre-home check on every animal re-homed by the branch. Every year our branch finds new homes for over 400 animals. To continue do this we are in desperate need of more home visitors. You need to be a car driver, with a clean licence. Training and support is given in this role prior to you first visiting on your own.
If you are interested in any of these voluntary roles, please contact the centre on 01905 821272
You may prefer direct involvement by organising your own event. A fete, a sponsored dress down day at the office or at school. We have information packs available for you to organise your own pub quiz or coffee morning.
