Activities

  • Trusteeship and committee work

Due to recent changes in board membership, with some long term trustees retiring, and some changes to the external environment impacting on the charity, we are looking for new expertise and commitment to shape our future. Trustees will be expected to bring an understanding of and willingness to challenge the issues affecting older people in the Borough. Particularly those of social isolation, the impact of poor health and changes resulting from social care reform. The new trustee (s) will additionally be expected to support other members of the board and the charity's senior managers in shaping the organisation's future, restructuring its operations, and developing future options for new funding and development. Whilst experience of working with older people is not a prerequisite, a commitment to the values of the charity and its core aims will be. Board members are required to attend 6 board meetings a year with occasional events and activities an additional demand. Trustees are a critical part of the organisation's governance and leadership. They should have a good grasp (or a willingness to learn) of both this charity's and the Charity Commission's oversight, obligations, and responsibilities. At Age UK we are committed to inclusion and Diversity. We would welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to reflect the communities and clients that we support.
