Third Sector Deputy Chair
Organisation: Cumbria Third Sector Network
Closing date for applications: 31 Jan 2019
Cumbria has a large and vibrant third sector, made up of organisations that play a huge role in the life of Cumbrian communities. These organisations range from community groups run entirely by volunteers to large local charities and social enterprises, some of which employ several hundred staff and have a multi-million pound turnover each year. From the volunteers running our village halls and mountain rescue teams, to the specialist staff working in our hospices and children’s centres, life in Cumbria quite simply wouldn’t be the same without them. The people of Cumbria are at the core – people giving and receiving support, and increasing sustainability of our local economies, environment, culture and heritage.
Cumbria Third Sector Network brings these many diverse organisations together and provides a mechanism for involving them in the planning of local services. The network has mechanisms to select representatives onto Cumbria’s strategic partnerships, and to give the sector a voice to lobby and influence local partners. The network has existed since 2007, and now has a mature and robust relationship with many local statutory sector partners.
Cumbria Third Sector Network appoints its independent Chair from outside the network, and elects its Deputy Chair from within the network. A major part of the Deputy Chair role is to support the Chair with their in depth knowledge of Cumbria’s Third Sector and the issues organisations face.
