Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund CIC is recruiting Board Members!

1024 560 rctadmin

In December 2016 the Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund opened

for business, offering a new, substantial source of funding across the upper

reaches of the Neath, Afan, Rhondda and Cynon valleys. If you are passionate

about this area, and excited about what the Fund can achieve – would

you like to join us?

We are looking for new members to join our Board in June this year.

We particularly welcome applications from people who live or work

in the Fund area. Previous experience of being a board member or trustee is not essential – training is available.

There are around 9 meetings each year. We aim to ensure that dates and

times of meetings are flexible to enable as many people as possible to attend. Members are responsible for:

  • ensuring that the organisation complies with its legal obligations and high standards of governance
  • overseeing the day to day management and strategic direction of the Fund
  • ensuring high levels of engagement with the local community and


  • assessing and awarding community funding

Remuneration is £300 a day (pro-rata for part days), along with reasonable

travel costs. Successful applicants will be formally appointed on 13.6.19

for a 3-year period with the potential for a further 3 years.
