Inclusive Boards is excited to work with the Winch in the search for two new trustees.
The Winch was founded in 1973, when local residents occupied The Old Winchester Arms, a pub that had been derelict since 1969, and converted it into a much-needed youth and community centre. Peter Mandelson, one of the original crowd, said ‘I spent far more time setting up a tremendous youth club at the Winchester Arms at Swiss Cottage, tearing it apart with my bare hands, then rebuilding it to make it structurally sound’.
Since 1973, they have worked with thousands of children, young people and families across North Camden to improve their chances in life. The issues they tackle include social exclusion, homelessness and gang involvement. They provide activities, opportunities and support as well as an out of hours phone line and access to additional services provided by their partners in education, health, housing and general advice.
We are assisting the Winch in their search for two new trustees. First and foremost, we are looking to recruit great people to join the Winch’s board. If you also bring one of the following, that would be a bonus:
- An understanding of issues facing children and young people’s in Camden and a willingness to influence on their behalf;
- Experience of property development and/or negotiating the commissioning and delivery of significant capital projects;
- A background in fundraising and/or income generation.
