Each Trustee of the charity and the members are all volunteers. They come from the local community and give up their time on a regular basis to come together and take the charity’s projects and events forward.
At each AGM, the office bearers are elected from the Trustee group including chairperson, vice chairperson, secretary and treasurer.
The Chair is the principal representative of the charity and has sound knowledge of policies and procedures and legislation as it affects the DCLP.
The Secretary’s responsibilities include dealing with correspondence and being well-informed about all aspects of the DCLP activities and interests. The Chair and Secretary liaise closely so that meetings run smoothly.
The Treasurer oversees DCLP funds, keeping accurate financial records and giving reports at each meeting.
The charity applies for grants and funding and needs to keep up-to-date on new funding opportunities to support their projects. DCLP often fundraise to support its activities and some examples of these are concerts, plant sales, running a charity shop.
