BRIC logo 2



BRIC (Blyth Resource & Initiative Centre) has been providing employment support and education to the local community for over 30 years. The services and activities BRIC provides are in direct response to the needs of centre users and the local community, and through partnership work with other local organisations. BRIC has a client base of over 5,000 unemployed people.

Although BRIC’s services fall into four main categories – IT Education, English & Maths, Employability and a Drop-in service; we have addressed many social issues outside of our own expertise that our clients have been faced with. Through partnership work with other local organisations, as well as through our own commitment to service users, we have been able to provide a wider support service to enable people to make significant and positive differences to their lives. Improving their skills and abilities, mental and physical well-being and by providing opportunities to make friends and socialise, enables service users to become more active members of the community.

We have a vacancy for a Trustee who is willing to devote the necessary time and effort, has strategic vision, good, independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak their mind.
