Board of Trustees

Help us to build the voice of rural communities in Berkshire!

Join us at an exciting time of growth!

Connecting Communities in Berkshire is moving into an exciting phase of development focusing on three strategic aims:

  • Improving rural health & wellbeing
  • Reducing rural poverty & disadvantage
  • Increasing rural digital inclusion & social connectedness.

A successful charity has a well-skilled experienced Board of Trustees “Where day-to-day management and operations are delegated to staff or volunteers, the Board remains responsible for supervising the chief executive (and sometimes other staff) and ensuring that the organisation is being well managed and operating within agreed policies, the law and its budget”. (NCVO)

CCB Trustees have key responsibilities which include:

  • Ensuring that we advance the purpose of our charity and we raise and manage our resources to deliver the services most needed by rural communities in Berkshire
  • Developing a strategy which addresses the changing needs of our beneficiaries
  • Bringing a different perspective to CCB’s work through our outside interests and networks
  • Acting as ambassadors for CCB
  • Taking a lead on one of our three strategic aims, working collaboratively with the staff team to deliver existing services and develop new areas of work
