Trustees wanted for successful local Community and Children’s Centre
The Weir Link is a vibrant and highly successful Community and Children’s Centre in Lambeth, South West London. Established in 2008, the Centre has been widely recognised for its good work, and has plans to expand its provision in the area of community health.
We want to increase the number of Trustees to match growth in the Centre’s activities. We are also planning ahead for the replacement of the Chair and others, as the end of their time as Trustees approaches.
In particular, we are seeking up to 4 people with the following experience, knowledge and/or professional skills:
- Community involvement and leadership
- Strategic leadership in the charity or not for profit sector
- Financial planning and management
- Supporting the well-being of Children and Young people
- Community health-care provision
- Education and/or Employment
- Service Level Agreements and Contracts
- Business Development and Fund-raising
Previous Trustee experience is not essential – induction training and support will be provided. It is important to us that the Trustee body fully represents the diversity, cultures, experience, and skills from across the borough of Lambeth. We are therefore seeking applications from local residents, parents/carers and community groups, as well those with relevant professional or voluntary experience and skills.
