Do you want to be part of an award winning museum and gallery which punches above its weight and produces innovative, exciting and inspiring exhibitions and events.

Find out about Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery on the website at: https://bailiffgatemuseum.co.uk/

We need people who are positive and committed to managing an almost exclusively volunteer-run museum visitor attraction, gallery and community resource who feel they can help us deliver our strategic plan. As a trustee you will play a vital role in setting our direction, overseeing our work and working with us to improve what we do.

Becoming a Trustee of Bailiffgate will give you the chance to be a part of an award-winning charity. It will also enable you to be part of an organisation that reaches into and across the community through our outreach and community projects and a wealth of activity often linked to education in its broadest sense.

Established in 2002, Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery is a multi-award-winning museum located in a beautiful, grade 2 listed, former Catholic church in the centre of Alnwick. It is run by volunteers (currently 45) and attracts around 10,000 visitors per year (although we want to increase this by 2021). Our vision of “heritage at the heart of the community” places local history, culture, folklore, traditions, stories, art and environment at the centre of everything we do. Through our collection, exhibitions, events and projects we work towards understanding, recording, sharing and celebrating the heritage of Alnwick and the surrounding area for the benefit of both local people and visitors.

We want to hear from anyone who wants to be part of our ambitious team. You will help us deliver our aims and can offer at least 3 hours or more a month to volunteer with us.

The Wooler Young Peoples Association (Wooler Drop-In) is seeking a new Chairperson to join its board.

Wooler Drop- In Centre was created in 1997 in response to a lack of activities and resources for young people in the local area, we formed under the charity name Wooler Young Peoples Association in 2003. The Drop-In provides youth services for people aged between 11 and 19 years. We offer social opportunities, activities and advice which otherwise could not be reached. We provide both a service open to all young people in the locality of Wooler, and targeted support, in response to particular issues or needs.

Our charity provides a vital service for local young people from Wooler and the surrounding areas.

In 2020 we have had to diversify our service to meet with COVID19 restrictions and government guidelines. We are heading into a new project offering wellbeing sessions and activity pack delivery for young people. The project is managed by our Youth Project Manager and ran by a small team of part time staff. We are looking to access new grant funding and increase our income to enable more young people to access new activities and opportunities.

We are recruiting a new Chairperson who will provide leadership and direction to the Board and enable the Board to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of the project. The Chair will work closely with the other Trustees and the Youth Project Manager to ensure that the WYPA complies with its legal duties, pursues its charitable objects and develops and achieves its strategic objectives to secure maximum impact for the young people.

As Chairperson you will attend roughly 6 meetings per year. In between meetings, you will work closely with other members of the board to develop and enable activity such as marketing and communications, fundraising events or new project ideas. You will be passionate about supporting young people and giving young people access to high quality experiences, wellbeing support and new opportunities.

The Chairperson and trustees do not work directly with children or young people.

BRIC (Blyth Resource & Initiative Centre) has been providing employment support and education to the local community for over 30 years. The services and activities BRIC provides are in direct response to the needs of centre users and the local community, and through partnership work with other local organisations. BRIC has a client base of over 5,000 unemployed people.

Although BRIC’s services fall into four main categories – IT Education, English & Maths, Employability and a Drop-in service; we have addressed many social issues outside of our own expertise that our clients have been faced with. Through partnership work with other local organisations, as well as through our own commitment to service users, we have been able to provide a wider support service to enable people to make significant and positive differences to their lives. Improving their skills and abilities, mental and physical well-being and by providing opportunities to make friends and socialise, enables service users to become more active members of the community.

We have a vacancy for a Trustee who is willing to devote the necessary time and effort, has strategic vision, good, independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak their mind.
