The current chair of Carney's Community is planning to step down and become a regular trustee in 2018. We are therefore seeking a dynamic individual to help lead us in our next phase of organisational development. We are seeking candidates with strategic insight and a good understanding of charity governance, to lead the board and support the Chief Executive.
As a small charity, we are seeking a chair with a ‘hands on’ attitude who is prepared to get involved in the charity’s work directly, and who can provide around 1-2 days work a month. Please note the position is on a volunteer basis and is unremunerated.
For more information about the role and how to apply, please view the Chair application pack.
The closing date for applications 19th August.
Update 15th June: We are ecstatic to announce that we have exceeded our target of £10,000 via 'The Summer Give' and raised £21,743! We would like to thank each and everyone of you, for your support and generosity.
Your Donations Double with the ‘Summer Big Give Challenge’
We have been lucky enough to have been accepted to take part in the ‘Summer Big Give Challenge’, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, to raise funds to fund our intensive one-to-one and sessional based mentoring with disadvantaged young people.
What this means is, any donations made to Carney’s Community during Monday 11th June – Midday Friday the 15th June, will be matched and doubled by the big give, doubling the impact on any generous donations you choose to make. That’s one donation with twice the punching power!
