Appointment of new trustees

We are seeking to appoint new Trustees. This could be your chance to use your expertise and experience to help shape our Charity’s future and support the communities of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Cambridgeshire ACRE is a successful independent Charity located in central Ely. It serves rural communities across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, providing a wide range of services, activities and practical help and support. We play a key role in leading and facilitating partnerships between public, private and community sectors, aligning efforts and achieving grant investment which has a positive impact for local communities. Our work includes running the village hall advice service; working with Town and Parish Councils so they can plan their futures and unlock the potential of their communities; delivering rural housing and supporting neighbourhood planning; delivering cultural, conservation, tourism and heritage programmes to make Cambridgeshire and Peterborough a better place to live, work and visit; managing EU funding programmes investing in businesses and communities enabling the rural economy to thrive. Our work with rural communities has supported many generations to take greater responsibility for the development of their town or parish. We believe that communities have huge capacity and potential to improve the places in which they live, with the right support.

Over the last years we have achieved a great deal but there is still work to do. We’re looking for new people to join us who can use their skills and experience to contribute to the charity’s governance, strategic direction and business effectiveness.

The role is not remunerated but out-of-pocket expenses will be paid. There will be a minimum of 6 days per annum for attending board meetings, meetings and events, but there are other opportunities to become further involved with the charity’s work if desired.

Further information about our work can be found at www.cambsacre.org.uk.

We would very much like to hear from anyone who considers this might be the right opportunity for them to give something back to their community. For further information and to arrange an informal chat, please contact Kirsten Bennett, Chief Executive via kirsten.bennett@cambsacre.org.uk.
