Interested in being a Charity Trustee?

Have you ever thought about volunteering some of your time and becoming a Trustee of a charity? Have you relevant and transferable skills which would assist in the strategic governance and continued growth and development of Ribble Valley Crossroads Care? If you are interested in joining our Board of Trustees we’d love to hear from you.

Short of Time but want to help?

We hold regular fundraising events and would be very grateful for any extra pair of hands to help raise funds for the charity. We also have a monthly lunch club as well as a dementia group that would also provide volunteering opportunities.
