St. Augustine’s Centre is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee that provides support for local people. They offer a range of services from their base in Park Ward, Halifax. This includes: general advice and support; employability support; housing advice; trips and outings; a community café serving a hot meal at lunchtime; and an on-site nursery.
Their aim is to support local, vulnerable people who need help. St. Augustine’s have also developed specialist skills in supporting refugees and asylum-seekers, many of whom live locally, whilst also providing support to others further afield in Calderdale. They currently have a team of 16 staff and are supported by approximately 200 volunteers.
As it is St. Augustine’s Centre’s 50th anniversary this year, they are looking to recruit some new Trustees to join the Board. They are particularly keen to hear from people with:
- Knowledge of and an interest in the local area
- Business skills including marketing, HR and legal
- Prior experience of fundraising or income generation.
Being a Trustee will provide you with an excellent opportunity to get involved in their work and make a difference to the lives of local people.
