Job Description

Do you have the skills and experience needed to help shape the future of a thriving Community Hub, which supports some of the most vulnerable families in North West London through our Food Bank, Community Kitchen and Edible Garden?

Sufra NW London is a Community Hub that provides a lifeline to people in crisis – including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless or socially isolated. We provide them with the food and support they need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their well-being, and help them to find work and become financially stable.

Our core work focuses on providing emergency food aid through our Food Bank and Community Kitchen, but these are gateway services that enable our service users (we call them guests) to access a wider range of services and activities designed to address the root causes of poverty and homelessness. Our services include:

  • Food Bank
  • Community Kitchen
  • Welfare Advice Service
  • Food Academy
  • Refugee Resettlement Programme 
  • Employment Training
  • St. Raphael’s Edible Garden

Each of these services is designed to lead vulnerable people on a personal journey from crisis to economic stability, social inclusion and active participation in the community. We rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers to ensure that we can deliver our services, and we work closely with local churches, mosques, schools and voluntary sector organisation for wide range of support.

Some of our Trustees are rotating off the board this year so we’re looking for additional Trustees to fill their places. In particular, we’re looking for applicants who can demonstrate a local connection to North-West London (working, living or closely associated with NW London), and who possess skills in at least one of the following areas:

  • Legal
  • Finance
  • Human resources
  • Voluntary Sector Experience
  • Fundraising (especially grant-fundraising)
  • Welfare & Advocacy Services (especially asylum-seekers/refugees)

We value diversity in the charity and welcome applicants of different faiths and cultural backgrounds.
