Partick Thistle Charitable Trust was established in 2011 to harness the power of football and sport to promote health and wellbeing, active citizenship and inclusion within our communities.
We do this through the provision of a range of community projects delivered in the North-West of Glasgow, working with the most disadvantaged and disengaged.
We have bespoke programmes for people of all ages living with a disability and, as a result, have made football and physical recreation available to amputees; children who walk with the aid of a frame; adults with learning disabilities and people living with challenging mental health. Alongside this we deliver regular sessions for members of the homeless community in Glasgow, where they get the opportunity to participate in physical activity, enjoy a meal and access primary healthcare services which, otherwise would be difficult for them to access.
Our aim at all times is to deliver community programmes that provide a fun and engaging environment where interventions improve lives and connect people, making them healthier, happier, more resilient, and successful.
The Partick Thistle Charitable Trust has taken over the running of the Petershill Complex and, will hopefully, take over the running of the football facility at Springburn Park. This development will help generate additional income for the Trust and allow it to extend the excellent work it does particularly in relation to people with additional support needs. This is an exciting new development, and the Trust are determined to ensure it has the best possible skill set available across its’ management structure to allow it to cope with the new demands this venture will bring.
Is this you?
The Partick Thistle Charitable Trust are seeking applications from likeminded people who have experience in facilities management. We have identified the following characteristics as key in terms of who we believe can complement the skillset of the current Board of Trustees.

You would need to attend quarterly board meetings.
