A local charity is seeking fresh talent to oversee the management of their work in the community.

Turriff and District Citizens Advice Bureau, which offers advice, information and practical support, is looking for a new chairperson to join the board of trustees.

Acting chairperson, Morag Fraser, said: “A recent change in the structure of advice services funding across Aberdeenshire means we’ll also have a change in service provision and delivery, so there’s lots to get our teeth into.

“Ideally the new trustee would have a business or finance background or experience in the voluntary sector but we’re open to all offers.

“It’s a voluntary post but the duties aren’t onerous.

“We think it’s an ideal opportunity for those looking for new challenges in 2020.

“Even if folks don’t think they’d like to be Chair, we’re always looking for new blood on the board and we’ve been delighted to welcome a number of new members in the last few months.”

Last year, the bureau served 998 clients with 3190 advice issues and brought in over a million pounds in financial gains for local residents.

Morag continued: “There’s a real opportunity for developing new services and ways of working.

“We had a really busy and productive year in 2019 and we’re looking to build on that in 2020 with opportunities for voluntary posts in admin, reception duties and advice work.”
