Local Board Members
A local Board in South Lakeland established in 2014 supports the development of this service provision. The board is made up of 8 people committed to improving services and opportunities for local people. The board is a key strategic link between partners GLL and SLDC. The role of a board member is an important part of our partnership, providing challenge, support and advice. Board members will already have a vested interest in their local community. Board membership is sought from those people who want to make a difference to the lives of those who live, work and explore South Lakeland.
If you have experience and/or skills in areas such as health/wellbeing, business, education, sport and community development and either live or work in South Lakeland we would love to hear from you.
We would like all sections of the community to apply. If travel is an issue please discuss this with us. As a board member we provide expenses for travel costs to and from meetings along with other engagements.
Board meetings are normally held quarterly, 6-8pm although we would like board members to become involoved in some of the many events and activities we host throughout the year.
These are voluntary positions for people with passion, enthusiasm and commitment who would like to work with local partners to improve and develop valued local leisure services, within a social enterprise framework.
As a board member you will play an integral part in shaping the facilities and services we operate in South Lakeland. At a strategic level you would be supporting the future direction of leisure. There are some huge challenges and opportunities in the coming years. As a local board member you will be able to influence the shape of leisure provision. If you would like to make a difference and put something back into the community we would love to hear from you.
Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL) has been operating for over 25 years. GLL, operates under the brand “Better”, is a non-profit charitable Social Enterprise organisation which runs over 250 sport and leisure facilities and libraries on behalf of local authorities across the UK. Our aim is to manage sustainable leisure facilities that support the communities they serve.
