Aberdeen Cyrenians have begun the search to find new volunteers to sit on its council of management.
Originally providing just food and shelter on its establishment in 1968, the local charity now offer a wide range of services to those who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or affected by the issue across the city.
Chief Executive Susan Montgomerie said: “This is a really exciting and challenging time from Aberdeen Cyrenians as we build up to our 50th anniversary next year and look at making some significant changes to the structure of the organisation.
“However, we need to balance these goals with the pressure of ever-increasing demands on our public services as the local economy continues to struggle and public services face further belt tightening.
“Present members draw experience from a wide range of backgrounds but the one thing they all have in common is a determination to use that experience to make a real difference in our community.”
Current council of management chairman Dan Fraser said: “Aberdeen Cyrenians is a landmark charity within the local area and it’s a real privilege to get this unique perspective on the work they do and play a part in shaping the services they provide.
“Although we are all focused on what we can add to the charity, the diversity of work and life experiences on the council of management mean we also benefit individuals.”
