Who we are

Cheshire Community Council (trading as Cheshire Community Action) is a community development charity that specialises in supporting rural communities. Originally set up in 1930, its purpose is to help rural communities manage and adapt to change across Cheshire, Warrington and Halton.

It provides support and advice services to help develop and improve places including:

community buildings;
accessing funding;
producing neighbourhood plans;
housing needs surveys and assessments;
developing community-led housing schemes and;
setting up social enterprises / community businesses.

It also provides services that directly support individuals through early intervention health and social care services.

It is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.


This role involves oversight and scrutiny of our financial management systems to ensure they are both efficient and legally compliant. They will be required to attend both the full Board and Scrutiny Committee meetings providing support to the staff team in its management of the organisation’s finances and reporting to the full Board on financial matters.


Many elements of our work have direct and indirect bearings on lower level mental health and overall well-being. Support that improves well-being can take many forms and we are interested in supporting individuals and communities to develop self-help projects. Therefore, we are looking for people with skills or a background in mental health provision – whether from a user or practitioner perspective.
