Slough Community Leisure Ltd (SCL) is a Leisure Trust established in 2000 offering incredible leisure and event venues, aimed to promote health and wellbeing in the local communities, in partnership with the Slough Borough Council. This partnership has gone from strength to strength and has led to some exciting improvements to services within Slough.

Its facilities include six fitness centres, two swimming pools, three sports halls, and a community events venue. In addition there are two indoor karting tracks, a tenpin bowling centre and an ice arena running through its subsidiary charity Absolutely Leisure.

Become a Trustee at SCL

The SCL Group manages eleven venues within the Thames Valley which offer Fitness Gyms and Sports facilities together with entertainment and events offerings. Their charitable purpose allows them to offer affordable prices, subsidised activities to target groups and direct support to other charities.

The organisation is looking for a Trustee with Digital Marketing Expertise.

The Board would welcome applications from anyone with skills that will contribute to the charity. Following a recent skills audit of Board Members, they have identified particular knowledge gaps in the areas of marketing and the new strategic health service structures.

  • Contribute to the strategic direction of a fast growing leisure charity working in the Thames Valley
  • Gain experience of the leisure and charity sectors
  • Contribute to the charity’s purpose and influence the health and wellbeing of our local communities
