Christian CARE Association (CCA) is a small, local charity, founded in 1967.  Its main aim is to assist people in need living in the London Borough of Merton who are in crisis and might refer themselves or be referred by agencies such as local schools, the Children’s and Families Hub at the Civic Centre, adult care services, social prescribers or MP.  An average of 100 families are assisted each year, some just once and some for several years.

The Executive Manager, as the sole paid employee, is responsible for managing or overseeing all volunteers who carry out the day-to-day work of the charity.  They need to be sensitive to the time limitations of these volunteers.  The role also includes the recruitment and development of new volunteers.  They should advise and support and bring together the Coordinators who lead the teams involved in running the five Projects: Befriending, Children’s and Baby Clothes, Children’s and Families’ Activities, Family Support, Furniture Project and the Office.  This is achieved by prioritising workload and chairing the CARE Committee which meets six times a year to share experiences, to plan and to review the work.  The Executive Manager reports to the Board of Trustees and attends their meetings too. They need to become familiar with CCA’s clients and be able to make quick assessments of requests and decide whether or not CCA has the resources to help.  It is important to be non-judgmental and non-discriminatory.  They will recognise that CCA cannot work in isolation and will need to liaise frequently with our supporters and other organisations who share the vision of CCA.
