Reeltime Music

Reeltime Music is a dynamic music charity, based near Motherwell, which believes passionately in creating opportunities for all young people especially those who are socially excluded in North Lanarkshire. The organisation runs a recording and rehearsal facility as well as providing short and long term music based outreach workshops which aim to build confidence and personal, social and group skills a well as providing volunteering opportunities, information and advice, and live music events for young people to be involved in.

As part of the charities expansion, the Board of Trustees is looking to recruit a range of new board members who have the commitment to help take the organisation to the next level. Experience in Business, Education, the Voluntary sector, Public sector or the Music industry would be beneficial but not essential.

Reeltime Music has grown from strength to strength in the past ten years and in doing so, has realised its potential as a social economy organisation. Reeltime Music was set up  was set up for a social purpose in August 1997, by a group of young people looking to help provide something for the young groups and acts in the local area. Through local surveys they established that affordable recording and rehearsal facilities were needed as many young people simply could not access these types of services.

Reeltime Music has already committed itself to the idea of social accounting and social audit, a process that enables the organisation to:

- account fully on its social, environmental and economic impacts
- to report on its performance
- to provide the information essential for planning future action and improving performance

Reeltime Music has recently been shortlisted for the Best Performing Social Enterprise Award at the Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards 2008. The Management Committee are currently strategically planning the next phase of the organisations growth and wishes to recruit new key members in order to continue developing into a social economy organisation and also develop further income generation strategies to secure long-term sustainability.
