North Berwick Coastal Community Connections is a charity tackling social isolation in the North Berwick Coastal area.
NBCCC has funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and the North Berwick Trust. We have five part-time
members of staff working with over 40 volunteers and 100+ members.
Our services include the Scone Café weekly drop-in, Befriending, Buddy Walking, a monthly ‘Community Connections’
newsletter, Coffee Connections meet-ups and the Compassionate Community project on death, dying and
We are currently recruiting for new Trustees to join the Board. We are particularly looking for a Secretary,
Safeguarding Officer and Co-Chair, but roles are negotiable according to the candidate’s background and
Trustees govern the charity. We aim to have a Board which covers the key areas in which we work, and we are now
seeking to appoint additional Trustees who, ideally, have experience in any of the following areas:
- Small voluntary organisations
- Charitable Board trustee roles
- Safeguarding of vulnerable
That said, we also welcome applications from individuals with other relevant experience. Our Trustees have ultimate
responsibility for the operation and development of the charity, including employability, compliance with
legislation, fundraising, public relations and financial control.
This is an exciting time to join NBCCC as a Trustee as we launch new partnerships and explore new opportunities to
help us respond to the ever-increasing demand for our support.
The principal responsibilities of a Trustee include attending and actively participating in regular Board meetings
(usually held on a Tuesday evening, both virtually and face-to-face). Trustees bring their professional
experience to help govern the charity and actively support the Project Manager. The time commitment required is
a minimum of one day per month, including the Trustee meetings (of 1.5-2 hours per meeting). All Trustees are
expected to share a passion and commitment to supporting socially isolated adults in the North Berwick Coastal
area. Please note that this is voluntary, although reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
