The Alfred Stewart Trust


The Alfred Stewart Trust, established in 2010, has focused on providing valuable support to the Photodynamic Therapy Centre (“PDTC”) at Ninewells Hospital Dundee. Now the Trust is seeking opportunities to extend its support further to other deserving projects and organisations in the Dunfermline area.

Due to legal reasons, the Trust has been under the administration of a Judicial Factor (court-appointed administrator) for some time. As this chapter nears its end, the Trust is actively seeking a dynamic Board of Trustees to lead and drive its future endeavours.

The Judicial Factor has closely collaborated with the Directors of the Charity’s Subsidiary, The Alfred Stewart Property Foundation Ltd. Together, they have diligently managed the substantial land assets entrusted to them by the settlor of the Charitable Trust. These valuable assets have been expertly overseen with the assistance of a local land management and surveying company, ensuring their optimal utilisation and development. Consequently, the Alfred Stewart Trust has substantial assets with which to support deserving causes in the years ahead.

The role

A Chair and 3 Trustees have recently been appointed to the Board of Trustees of The Trust. We are now seeking a further two Trustees to further strengthen the Board at this exciting time.

The Trustee Board will maintain its accounting records for the Annual Accounts, which will be audited by both the Accountant of Court and external auditors. The Board will also prepare the Annual Return for OSCR. Therefore, financial knowledge within the Board is desirable for basic accounting tasks.

Assessing funding applications for individuals and organisations will be an important part of the Trustee Board’s work. Each member must genuinely care about the welfare of individuals and organisations in Dunfermline and the surrounding area and be inspired to make an impact.

The ideal candidate:

  • As the Subsidiary ventures into land/property management, having someone familiar with this area would be a valuable addition to the Trustee Board.
  • The Trust are committed to ensuring diversity and equality on their Boards, therefore we are particularly interested in hearing from women, who are currently underrepresented on the Board.

Meetings will likely occur four times a year unless special projects require more frequent discussions. Remote attendance is possible, allowing individuals from outside the area to apply.

For a confidential discussion, please contact Debbie Shields, or Lauryn Pringle at Aspen People on 0141 212 7555.

Closing date for applications: Friday 12th April 2024
