Trustees needed – Southern Brooks Community Partnership (SBCP)




Who we are

Southern Brooks Community Partnership (SBCP) is looking for 3 trustees to guide the charity during an exciting time of organisational growth and help achieve our five-year plan.

We are a charity who works with the community to deliver a wide range of support services across South Gloucestershire and Bristol. Some of the projects we run include one to one support for families, adults and children, 3 Youth Clubs, employment coaching for unemployed people furthest from the job market. We aim to fill gaps in service provision, where communities’ needs are not being met. For more information on the services and projects we run please read our most recent annual report found at


What’s happening this year

This year we have entered a period of growth and expansion having secured significant new funding including from various funders well as seeing growth in our community café in Patchway, Brooks Café, and learning income. In April 2017 we have merged with Community Ignite in Kingswood and expanded our services across South Gloucestershire.

Our aim is that by 2022 we will have established SBCP as a community development partner offering a high quality, wide, deep and integrated range of services for existing and new communities across South Gloucestershire and into Bristol and BANES.

You will receive support and training to perform your role. Receive travel and other reasonable expenses. Be invited to celebratory events for projects.
