Following Newcastle City Council’s decision in November 2017 to set up a charitable Parks Trust for Newcastle (see Planning for implementation), Newcastle City Council is working with the National Trust to recruit the first Chair and Board of Trustees for the new charity. This Board will shape and steer the charity to ensure the parks and green spaces flourish, and the charity will take over running the parks by April 2019.


The National Trust and Newcastle City Council are also recruiting a freelance Fundraising Consultant to support development of an endowment fundraising action plan. A full brief can be found in the Resources section below.
