Cambridge House is a social action charity in South London. Our roots lie in radical change, in a desire to tackle poverty, social inequity and injustice in the communities we serve. We’ve expanded from our Southwark roots into a regional organisation, working in communities across London. Our work is varied and far reaching, from campaigning for safer tenancy for renters, to offering free expert legal services in housing, employment and benefit law or helping support the development of social policy and practice through our research and knowledge exchange.
This is a pivotal point for our future, and new strategy. We are now seeking up to six Trustees to broaden our mix of perspectives, professionally and personally, to help us move forward successfully and with strength. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who offer depth of insight, experience or influence within the following area:
We are also seeking a Vice Chair. We value diversity and warmly encourage applications from disabled and LGBTQIA+ people, candidates who share lived experiences with our service users, and people from minoritised communities.
Above all, we are seeking Trustees who share a commitment to social justice and our mission, who are able to think strategically and creatively about different ways we can achieve our objectives, and who can balance principles and pragmatism to help us deliver the biggest impact we can, as quickly as we can. We need people who understand how to achieve change and are used to working with senior stakeholders across industry, government and the third sector.
If you believe you have these skills and attributes and are someone who holds a deep passion for a more equitable and just future, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
