Summary

Community Chaplaincy Norfolk is looking for a new Chair of Trustees to lead our charity to support people leaving prison to rebuild their lives.

Detailed description

Join the Board at CCN


“I was instantly taken with CCN, I felt that the organisation filled a huge gap that is not part of the justice provision. The true measurement of our success is achieved every time a mentor meets with their charge” – Martin Edwards, CCN Trustee


CCN Trustees meet six times a year, on Thursday evenings, at HMP Norwich. These meetings are in the odd numbered months. In addition, we meet once a year in the Spring to discuss and to formulate strategy, in the Summer for a social event and in the Autumn for some training. Trustees generally serve between 3 and 5 years. We are particularly interested to receive applications from those with lived experience of the criminal justice system, who have been out of prison for 4+ years.


A Trustee has particular duties summarised by the Charity Commission as:


1. Ensuring that CCN is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit;

2. Complying with CCN’s constitution and with the law;

3. Acting in the best interests of CCN;

4. Managing the resources of CCN responsibly;

5. Acting with reasonable care and skill; and

6. Ensuring that CCN is accountable.


We are looking to take on Trustees who can fill some of the gaps in our Skills Audit although the most important things are these: that the appointee has (regardless of prior experience) a passion for and a commitment to our work; and that he/she fits in with the existing Trustees and Staff. We encourage individual Trustees to take an interest in particular aspects of the organisation.
