Communities CAN (North East) is a wholly-owned trading arm of Community Action Northumberland, one of 38 Rural Community Councils across the country. It was established as a ‘support hub’ for community–led housing in 2017, charged with promoting and supporting a broad range of these type of initiatives across the County of Northumberland. With the benefit of national funding recently secured, it now intends to extend its geographical scope to include North Tyneside and Newcastle upon Tyne which, with Northumberland, formed the North of Tyne Combined Authority, launched in November 2018.
Our mission is to secure a major expansion of community-led housing within Northumberland, the North of Tyne area and where appropriate, elsewhere in North East England, establishing the sector as an effective contributor to meeting housing need and demand. We also aim to be an exemplar technical support hub for community-led housing in the UK.
Communities CAN is looking for up to two people to join our Board of Directors. We are looking for Directors with business skills, an interest in social enterprise and an enthusiasm for community-led housing; one person should have experience in finance and the other skills in marketing.
