New Cross charity needs board members

Ben Farber, Chair of the New Cross Gate Trust - a social regeneration charity working to improve the New Cross Gate area - writes:

We're currently looking to fill a couple of vacancies on our board and I hope Brockley Central readers might be interested.

In particular we are seeking a new Chair (I am being relocated out of London for work in October), ideally with prior experience of leading teams and chairing meetings and a commitment to principles of good governance.

We are also looking for a resident board member (must reside in New Cross, Brockely or Telegraph Hill wards) and 'community representative' who has strong links to other community organisations in New Cross.

Applicants with a background in or experience of operational management, commissioning services, community development, PR, housing, finance and the environment would be particularly welcome.

Full details on the vacancies and application process can be found on our website.

For anyone wishing to discuss the roles in more detail, Jenny Couper is ready and waiting to speak on 07968 278315 or via

Deadline for applications is 10:00am June 8th.
