Become a Trustee
Hale Community Centre’s vision is to be at the heart of the community enabling social and community success. We aim to achieve this by working closely with others - individuals and organisations - and by providing and supporting opportunities for individuals and groups in educational, training, employment, cultural and leisure activities. Over the last few years a great deal has been achieved in creating and strengthening partnerships with residents and local organisations and making the vision a reality.
While experience of working with a charity would be of benefit it is not essential, but we are looking for an interest in working with the community and making a difference to people’s lives.
As a trustee of the Centre you see first hand the differences the Centre’s makes to the lives of local residents through the projects we run and the activities taking place – reduced isolation; improved confidence and self-reliance; reduced levels of anxiety and stress. And you are instrumental in bringing about these changes through discussions with local residents and local organisations - those represented on the Board and others – and through working with a team committed to and passionate about making a difference.
Much of the work can be done from home, with attendance at very occasional office meetings and quarterly Board meetings, which are held for a couple of hours early evening at the Centre.
