Chair of trustees

Kingsmeadow Community Flat
Contract Type: 
Part Time
Details of Role: 
Kingsmeadow Community Flat is the hub of the community. Located in a priority neighbourhood area of Kingswood, South Gloucestershire, we are a registered charity focussed on preventing isolation, reaching out to those already in isolation and tackling unemployment.  We work with individuals, families and young people facing multiple challenges, providing a range of support services and well-being activities.
After 10 years located in a flat in the New Cheltenham area, we are about to take over a former youth centre under a community asset transfer from South Gloucestershire Council. This will give us significantly more space: a community lounge/café; sports hall; quiet room; resource room; training room; boulder room; workshop; and playing field. This will require substantially more funding, more partnerships with local organisations and an enhanced role for the trustees as the responsibilities of the charity become much bigger. 
The purpose of the role is to chair the board of trustees and provide leadership to Kingsmeadow Community Flat at a time of exciting growth and development.
Closing Date:
