Ouseburn Farm Charity Limited

A subsidiary of Tyne Housing Association, Ouseburn Farm Charity Ltd. is a registered charity, a community-spirited place where learning, enrichment and personal growth are offered freely to whoever needs it.

With a working community farm and cafe, and a carpentry and upcycling workshop offering training and education opportunities for local people, we provide a truly unique environment in Newcastle upon Tyne’s urban heart. Our reason for being is summed up in our mantra:

This is a place for growing

Plants, fruit and veg, animals, but most of all, people

We cultivate joy here. And learning

We nurture self-confidence and a sense of belonging

You’ll feel it as soon as you walk through our door

Lives are being enriched

Needs are being nourished

It couldn’t happen without our volunteers. Or your donations

We’re a charity. Run for people, not for profits

A community-spirited place where everyone is welcome. And valued

This is a happy place

A wholesome place

A human place

We are looking for enthusiastic people to become voluntary board members.  These are unpaid positions, although we can pay reasonable out of pocket travel expenses.

Board meetings are generally held in the evenings although we may have occasional meetings/events during office hours.  Our board currently meets quarterly.

If you have a passion to make a difference and the willingness to give time and commitment then we want to hear from you.  We are looking for people with experience in adult social care, hospitality and catering, capital development, finance or general commercial expertise.  We particularly welcome applications from BME candidates and other underrepresented groups.
