Would you like to gain valuable Charity Board experience while working to conserve and promote one of the world’s best long-distance trails?

The South West Coast Path Association is seeking new Trustees to help strengthen their work and reputation. They are a well-established Charity with around 7,000 individual and business members and around 100 volunteers. They work in partnership with national government, local councils and agencies like the National Trust to promote the 630-mile National Trail, and to enhance and conserve it for future generations.

Their Board of Trustees meets quarterly in their offices at the newly renovated and historic Royal William Yard on the Coast Path in Plymouth. They have committees on finance/HR, membership and fundraising, and Path matters, to help support the Director and staff in their work. They also meet elsewhere in the South West and make wide use of telephone and videoconferencing to accommodate those that live further afield.

The South West Coast Path Association are currently looking for someone with financial/accounting skills, and/or experience of the health and wellbeing sector. They are committed to improving the diversity of their Board and particularly welcome applications from women, those in the BAME community and people with disabilities.

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for you to help sustain the work of the charity to share the benefits of the South West Coast Path, described recently as one of England’s ‘unmissable experiences’ by the Lonely Planet guide.

If you are interested and would like to talk informally about how the Board works, please contact: Julian Gray, Director or Ken Carter, Chairman on 01752 876938.
