Cape Aug, 2019

Position of Trustee

On Behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am delighted to introduce you to CAPE and thank you for your interest in playing an important role in the charity’s future.

CAPE exists to provide flexible support services to people with enduring mental health needs living in the London Borough of Ealing. 
The trustees are incredibly proud of the achievements of the charity over its twenty-one-year existence and the real difference we make to people lives. Although a small charity we are ambitious on our client’s behalf in finding innovative ways to meet the increasing complex needs of those we support and achieving financial sustainability in the future to continue our work. 

We are seeking to appoint two new Trustees to join what is a small, professional, warm and supportive Board. While we look forward to applications with a range of backgrounds, we are particularly keen to hear from individuals with skills and experience in organisational change & development and fundraising and business development that complement our existing Trustee skills.

We look forward to hearing about the contribution you could make as a member of the Board as we continue to drive the charity’s success and the success of the clients we support.

Appointment Brief For the position of Trustee

Cape Shop June, 2019

Charity Boutique Volunteers

Community Activities Project Ealing (CAPE) was founded 21 years ago, to meet the needs of individuals living with mental health needs in the local community. Our founding service was a safe place in the form of a Café where people could meet and take up peer support. This service continues to this day. However, over the years we have recognised that we are working with a wide range of needs that have an impact on an individual’s mental health and wellbeing, so we have developed and continue to develop a suite of services, voluntary and training positions to respond to a wide range of needs. We focus on the individual not just the diagnosis, which encourages us to recognise that each person is different and has complex needs and so our response needs to be multi-layered.

CAPE is a growing and thriving charity shop brand. We believe in serving our local community, creating a positive shopping experience for our customers and ensuring our donors know that we are grateful for their support.

We are seeking volunteers who can bring the following:

Great communication skills and love meeting people.
Some retail experience, although not essential as training will be provided.
A love of fashion and an eye for detail.
Ability to pick up large bags and provide light cleaning duties when required.

What we offer: -

A great place to volunteer.
A great team to work alongside. 
20% volunteer discount on donated goods 
Training on site.

If you have a few hours per week to spare and would like to volunteer, please fill out and send the aplication form.
