How we work
The Jewish History Association of South Wales/Cymdeithas Hanes Iddewig De Cymru is a registered charity, funded by grants from a variety of organisations for specific projects and by donations. It is managed by Trustees who are ultimately responsible for the Association's management and conduct as a charity.
The Government sets out the responsibilities of a charity's trustees as follows:
Ensure your charity is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit.
Comply with your charity’s governing document and the law.
Act in your charity’s best interests.
Manage your charity’s resources responsibly.
Act with reasonable care and skill.
Ensure your charity is accountable.
The day-to-day operation and decision-making of the Association is carried out by our paid staff, who report regularly to the Trustees. They compile applications for grants, plan the work and supervise our volunteers and interns.
The Trustees meet monthly, in person or on Zoom, with the staff in attendance to review progress and decide the overall strategy and direction of the Association.
We are looking for two new Trustees to join our organisation; skills or experience in fundraising and/or digital marketing would be particularly welcome.
