Additional Non-Executive Board members wanted to help make a lasting difference to young people in Lambeth

We are seeking a diverse and experienced range of Board members who can help set the strategic direction for youth and play services in Lambeth.

Successful candidates will bring top level management and/or board experience, alongside the ability to provide strategic leadership and oversee performance. A description of the requirements for Board members are outlined in the application pack.

We are the Young Lambeth Cooperative (YLC), a non-profit cooperative created by Lambeth Council and the community in 2015 to act as the primary strategic coordinator and commissioner of co-produced youth services for the Borough.

We are a growing, financially stable organisation with an income of £1.5m and we have recently been awarded Big Lottery Funding to develop our services further, delivering more benefits to local young people.

We are an outcomes-based funder and an alliance lead supplier, with a membership of 7,000 of whom 35% are under the age of 19. We focus on developing increased aspirations, improved emotional resilience, decreased risk of violence (victimisation and perpetration), reduced marginalisation and increased key-life and leadership skills for and within young people.

The director role will make you an ambassador for the YLC and your experience, dedication and enthusiasm should reflect this.
