Purple Elephant Family Support Request

Organisation Description

Purple Elephant runs services for families local to Frome who need support and are facing disadvantage, via befriending, support groups, 1:1 work, activities, parenting support and events. The families we support may be on low incomes, have additional needs and disabilities, experience substance or domestic abuse, be in temporary accommodation or displaced.
Our services give families the skills they need to become more resilient, reduce isolation, overcome hardship and bring joy to their lives.

What are they looking for?

Having recently changed from a CIC to a CIO we are improving our structure and back office systems. We would benefit from an IT audit together with practical help to implement improvements, some of which can be virtual but some will need to be in person. This is a pressing need but would not require a high time input.
We're looking to set up a CRM system to manage data on the families that we support. We would benefit from support to set this up and train staff in its use. This is a longer term project over the next 12 months.
We are always looking for new trustees to join our band of 6 and especially for a treasurer, which we don't currently have. This would require monthly input in person and would need to be based locally to Frome. A job description is available on request.
