New pro bono project with Journey to Justice

Journey to Justice

Project summary:

The charity has been in existence since 2013 and has an ongoing programme of work involving local affiliated groups.  Journey to Justice have an outline of a strategy with objectives to achieve over the next three years and need to develop their management arrangements, including; administration systems, data/information systems, evaluation and impact in the short and longer term, volunteer management, appropriate separation of governance and operational delivery, fundraising, approach to risk and business continuity.  This needs to be done whilst the ongoing programme is delivered but it is necessary for the charity to have as strong a base as possible in order to be sustainable.
The volunteer(s) will need experience in developing strategy, business planning, analysing risk, developing performance monitoring, and measuring impact, frameworks.  Thus the work involves a combination of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ OR skills.
Time commitment5-10  days

Location: Possible meetings in London, UK, but the majority of the work can be carried out remotely.
