 Coventry Cyrenians Trustees

Can you spare just a few hours each quarter to provide guidance and expertise to a local charity?

Coventry Cyrenians are one of the leading independent providers of services for homeless people in the area with a variety of projects in Coventry and Warwickshire and currently provide more supported accommodation in Coventry for single homeless people than any other single agency.

The established Board of Trustees wishes to increase its number and improve its skills set and is keen to attract people with relevant skills and experience.

For further information see the attached poster and advert.

fund raising
obtaining relevant permissions
managing building professionals
keeping everyone engaged
ensuring the project brings the desired benefits over the longer term.
