Recruiting: Can you help us transform isolation into connection?

If you have spark, energy and the desire to create local reconnection and engagement, you could be the key to our future development.

NBC Community Connections is a voluntary project tackling social isolation in the North Berwick Coastal area. It evolved through the NBC Health & Wellbeing Association, which is a subgroup of the Area Partnership. After a successful first year connecting nearly 60 local adults into local gatherings and activities, during Covid-19 we’re keeping members connected through telephone befriending and a monthly newsletter.  We’re now recruiting a new Management Group to oversee our work, collaborate to help us become a charity and put our work on a firmer footing for the future. We’re ideally seeking two Co-Chairpersons to share this leadership role, and also a Secretary, Treasurer and Task Group Convenors to lead on specific areas of work (fundraising, befriending, becoming a charity, communications/events, future face to face/Scone Cafe gatherings).

Essential – experience of governance, chairing meetings (for the Co-Chairs); commitment to and understanding of the NBC Community Connections project’s work; ability to advocate for us to others.

Desirable – experience of fundraising, small voluntary organisations, becoming a SCIO.

On Wednesday 10th June, 9.30-10.30 am, we’ll hold an informal Zoom meeting to allow a group chat for everyone interested, responding to your questions about the new Management Group and what we’ll be doing together. No strings attached! Contact Carol for a Zoom invitation link.

Our AGM is on Tuesday 23 June, 11-1 (Zoom meeting) when the new office bearers will be elected. Contact Carol for a Zoom invitation link.

For more information, please contact Carol Stobie, Project officer, NBC Community Connections, on nbc-communityconnections@outlook.com or tel. 07940 203380 for more details. Deadline is noon on Friday 12 June.

We look forward to hearing from you. Please share this with anyone who might be interested.
