Job Description

Want to help us reach out to the North London community? You don't need to know about canals or boats.

We are a small charity which maintains & runs a historic canal narrowboat on the Regent’s Canal in London.

We are staffed entirely by volunteers.

We are looking for new Trustees.  You must be 18 years or over.

An understanding of the workings of small organisations run by volunteers would be an advantage.  We particularly need younger people from different ethnic backgrounds to join our ageing board.

All trustees are also directors of the limited company.

This post is not remunerated, but expenses will be refunded.

Meetings are held about once a quarter in North London.

Applicants will be contacted by phone initially, when your queries can be answered, and then you will be invited to meet us to learn more about what we do. Successful candidates will need to supply references.

The Objects of the Association are:

1. To assist in the relief of distress and hardship suffered by young people, the elderly, the vulnerable, and other people with special needs in the London Borough of Camden (and adjoining areas).

2. To advance the education of young people and others in regard to canals in Camden and adjoining areas, their history, their uses and their environment.

3. Provide one or more narrowboats for the benefit of people living or working in the London Borough of Camden (and adjoining areas)

Further, we have a special responsibility for preserving and maintaining the historic narrowboat, TARPORLEY.
