Southern Brooks Community Partnerships is an independent charity (RCN 1157061). We are looking to source high calibre individuals who can contribute to the development of this growing charity. 2019 is a great time to join the Board as Southern Brooks have two new commercial projects in the pipeline – a flagship affordable housing scheme and the development of an existing day care facility for early onset Alzheimers.

We are looking to appoint a number of voluntary Board members to play a major role in contributing to its planning and development, strategic oversight, commercial development and management of the charity. The current board are passionate about the work of Southern Brooks and have invested their time to working in partnership with the Local Authority and other like-minded organisations within South Gloucestershire to help empower individuals and build stronger communities, addressing the charity’s key areas of work: learning & development, health and wellbeing, and community cohesion. 

We now require several dynamic individuals who are able to work as part of an existing team to contribute to the development and success of Southern Brooks.  As a board member you will work closely with the senior staff and we would like to hear from individuals with:

  • Strong business contact networks within South Gloucestershire or Bristol, which can be leveraged to benefit the charity.
  • Ambition, tenacity and who are not afraid to challenge opinions.
  • A local knowledge and wider experience of commercial social ventures, legal, business development, project management skills, social housing, further education, retail, health and social care.
