Working together to end homelessness
In Cornwall, more and more people live in poverty and are struggling to make ends meet, with many finding themselves homeless.
To help address this crisis, we are committed to opening an Emmaus Community in Cornwall and to help facilitate this, we are looking to develop innovative and sustainable social enterprises.
We have recently established the first such enterprise, a Tree Nursery on a site leased to us by Trewithen Estate.
At this pivotal time in our development, we are seeking a dynamic Chair to help set our strategic direction in terms of our social enterprises and who has the drive, personality and networks to promote the importance of an Emmaus Community in Cornwall and to help make this vision a reality.
The Chair will lead and be fully supported by a Board of enthusiastic Trustees, with a range of skills and experience and will have the opportunity to complement that team by overseeing the recruitment of additional Trustees with the necessary passion and expertise.
Are you ready for this exciting challenge? If you are interested in joining us at this fascinating, formative stage we will be delighted to receive an application from you.
Emmaus recognise the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage Trustee applications from people of all backgrounds.
Full details, including the role requirements and person specification are available to download below.
