Sussex Clubs for Young People has supported grass roots voluntary and community sector youth clubs for 80 years, starting as the county association for boys 'and girls' clubs in 1939.

We are transforming into a social enterprise to manage and provide Youth and Community Workers who will engage and involve young people in a range of clubs that benefit their local community. Through positive activities with a strong focus on health and well-being we want to create safe places where young people can enjoy learning and taking part. We want every young person to build their self-esteem and resilience with a range of opportunities to achieve awards and recognition that are valued in their communities.

Sussex Clubs for Young People are looking for new trustees with strong business backgrounds who can work with our teams of Youth and Community Workers to develop the business side of the social enterprise. We ideally need a Finance Trustee with accountancy experience, HR Trustee to support our growing staff team and a Marketing Trustee to challenge us to do better at promoting our work and the impact we have on young people.

There are excellent opportunities to shape a charity turning social enterprise, with a time commitment of only 1-2 days per month for the next three years.
