BTA say “Together We Can” to Worldwide Cancer Research

At BTA, we love it when we hear of a Scottish charity doing something big, bold and brave.

When that charity funds life-saving cancer research projects in the UK and across the world which, in the 40 years since it was founded in St Andrews has helped double cancer survival rates, then we’re even more excited.

And when BTA was asked to play a part in helping the small but determined charity coordinate the biggest change in their history, we were absolutely thrilled.

Andrew Muirhead joins BTA.

Share Scotland in the Medals!

Share Scotland is a small, family led organisation who provide care and support to people with extremely complex and severe disabilities, allowing them to live in their own homes. Their main aim is to ensure that the ambitions and desires of these people are met as far as possible, whilst leaving as light a footprint on their lives as they can.

One of those ambitions held by a group of tenants from one of Share’s properties in the East of Scotland, was to take part in the Special Olympics this year.

How does your Board stack up?

Having a board with the right balance of Trustees with the necessary skills and experience is critical to a charity’s success, especially at the moment. You should consider carefully if your Charity Board is correctly constituted and trained? When did you last do some collective training?

Carrying out a regular Board Skills Audit would be a useful first step.
