SIF is looking for a new Board Member. This is a voluntary position for someone with experience at a senior level in a relevant sector such as banking, accounting, law, public services etc. The time commitment is two days a month, on average. Full details and how to apply here.

You may have heard about SIF because they were behind the Covid-19 Community Charity Appeal. And they distribute the surplus income raised by probate. Plus they have taken over from the Association of Guernsey Charities in awarding lottery funding.

Here’s an example of one of their grants, to the social prescribing scheme.
