Help shape the future of Cornwall’s Communities by becoming a Trustee of Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC)

Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC) is a medium sized charity with around 100 staff and a turnover in excess of £2m. To help us maintain our position as a well-respected voluntary sector organisation, we are looking for experienced individuals to join our board.

CRCC has a small, professional team of trustees that offer support and advice to the CEO and guides direction and governance of the charity.  They take a steading approach in the background, attending around eight board meetings per year and occasional staff meetings and events as appropriate.

CRCC has been helping Cornwall’s communities for decades and understands the wellbeing value of being part of a strong community such as making friends, sharing common interests and having a place to meet. The government has an emphasis on social prescribing – the practice of offering preventative activities to keep people fit, happy and healthy without the need for medical intervention, this puts CRCC’s activities and delivery right at the heart of Cornwall’s future.

Being a trustee is an interesting and rewarding role and gives the opportunity to use your skills and experience, such as financial management, human resource support, strategy development and service delivery analysis to help others. At present we are seeking trustees to join our board, one with a finance background such as commercial accounting and/or management accounts and one general trustee with budget management experience and good understanding of the voluntary sector.

To find out more about joining the board, please contact Alan Shepherd, Chair
