 We were established in 2016 to provide support for people affected by dementia, other memory problems, and isolation.  We run regular pop-up cafes providing entertainment, information, support and socialisation for individuals, their families and carers. Since we began we have steadily increased our membership (firstly with our Sowerby Bridge cafe and, a year later, our Halifax cafe).

We are now looking for an enthusiastic and committed volunteer to join our Trustee team as Treasurer to help us continue to grow and develop our what we do. You’ll need to attend meetings (quarterly plus other meetings from time to time) and also be able to work at home on managing the finances and providing reports etc to the Trustees.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who has:-

  • good communication skills
  • ability to use spreadsheets
  • awareness of accounting practices
  • willingness to learn – we’ll provide training as necessary and there will be other opportunities for learning and personal development as part of our team.

Our accounts are currently well-managed by our current Treasurer who will be leaving us at the end of the financial year (31-3-21). He will be available to familiarise and induct the new Treasurer into the role for a seamless transfer.

We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and Registered Charity No 1178595.

  • Sport coaching
  • Dance
  • Animal care and outdoor activities
  • Arts
  • Social Work

These are 2 to 9 months projects starting from January 2021 and taking place in countries such as Greece, Aruba, Croatia or Italy.

These projects are free. They are funded by the European Solidarity Corps programme of the European Union. There are no costs to you (flights, food and accommodation are paid for you).

Who is it for? They are looking for young people aged 18-30, living in the UK and be confident and ready to try new things. These projects may be a alternative opportunity for those who have not achieved what they hoped for in their A-levels or may not now be going to university due to COVID-19 disruptions.

Over the past 20 years, Everything Is Possible have helped thousands of young people, to experience international mobility opportunities.
