Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre (FVRCC) is looking for new volunteers to join their Board. There are 2 roles available: Board Member/Trustee and Treasurer/Trustee.
FVRCC is a feminist organisation providing free and confidential information, advocacy and support to anyone over 13 years old in the Forth Valley areas (Falkirk, Clackmannanshire, and Stirling) affected by sexual violence. This includes survivors of sexual violence, and their friends and families.
