We’re excited to announce that in April 2019, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now united to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer. From research to care, our new charity has people affected by the disease at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we can carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign even more effectively for better services and care. By bringing together our passion, energy, expertise, funds and networks, we will make greater progress in more effective ways to make sure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live and receive the support they need to live well.

For over 30 years Gorgie City Farm has operated as a successful community-owned initiative based in the west of Edinburgh. We’re a working farm and visitor attraction aiming to bring the sights, sounds, and smells of farming into the city through our wide range of animals and plants.

As part of the next stage of our development we’re looking for a new Chair to join our Board. Our current Chair has been in the role for 5 years and now feels the time is right to step down and let someone else take the Farm forward in our next exciting stage of development. We’re open to applicants from any sector and farming knowledge isn’t a prerequisite. We need someone with sound business skills, a good communicator with the ability to run Board meetings and lead our strategic thinking into the future.
The time commitment for the role is reasonably small – we have 6 Board meetings each year and an AGM usually around November. We also have sub-committees tasked with overseeing and helping with strategy for a specific area of the Farm which usually between each Board meeting; although the Chair isn’t part of any specific committee, attendance happens from time to time. It would be expected that a level of informal visits would also take place at the Farm to familiarise themselves with the team and operation.
