WFCA AGM Update
Our annual general meeting took place on May 17th and we were very pleased to welcome many carer members and friends of WFCA. The formal business of adopting the annual review / accounts as well as electing a new Board of trustees was undertaken. We then had a great discussion about the future of WFCA and carers were pleased to hear about the planned “carers befriending scheme,” some people volunteered, straight away, to be volunteer “befrienders!” Funding for a pilot project has been secured from the National Lottery and we are awaiting the outcomes of other funding applications.
The following people were re-elected to the Board –
Neil Collins, Durre Wassim, Clarice Wint, Vida Timms
Joachim Bridet, Karen Stanley and Elizabeth Blewett all stood down and were thanked for their work for WFCA
If you feel you could help WFCA either as a Trustee or as a volunteer please get in touch 020 8556 0857 or email@example.com
Waltham Forest Carers Association are looking for volunteers and people with enthusiasm!
Do you have a skill, hobby or interest that you would like to share with likeminded carers? Maybe you are great at photography, jogging, walking, crafts, computers, gardening, chatting or dance and would like to introduce others to this activity? WFCA are very keen to develop groups of carers and volunteers who would be willing and able (with support) to share their skills other carers. WFCA are happy to provide venues to meet up and coordinate. We will probably even offer drinks and biscuits! Please get in touch as soon as you can with your ideas to share.
