Who we are
Angel Shed is a charity based in Islington, North London, specialising in inclusive performing arts for children and young people. We provide a safe space for children to express themselves, develop confidence and grow into curious, creative, and courageous young people.
We facilitate accessible activities for children and young people of all backgrounds and abilities; anyone is welcome to join, we never audition, our workshops are free to those who cannot afford them, and we provide one-to-one support for those who require it.
Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for a Chair with experience of charity or organisational governance as well as a passion and a belief in giving children and young people access to inclusive and participatory performing arts. This appointment is an opportunity to have a positive and lasting impact on a growing charity that is really making a difference for children and young people in the Islington community.
Angel Shed will be celebrating its 20th year anniversary during 2024 and we are seeking to build on our continued success to develop and grow as we move into our third decade.
The role of Chair is voluntary and is not a paid position. Expenses for reasonable costs, such as travel and care of dependants may be claimed.
Angel Shed's home is at City and Islington College, Islington, North London. All Board meetings are currently held here.
6-9 board meetings per year, as required, with email contact and organisation between each. The Chair is also required to have regular meetings with the Artistic and Executive Director, and to represent the charity at various events and meetings.
An initial 3-year term, with the option for re-election for up to two further terms.
