    6. Support inventory management and stock ordering;
    7. Act as point of contact and administrative support for our Footcare Fife volunteers;

    10. To support other staff when required in relation to specific activities such as event management;
    11. Consistently gather and report data required for FVA’s quantitative and qualitative monitoring and evaluation systems;
