We are seeking new trustees

We are seeking new Trustees including an experienced voluntary Treasurer to join us. We are particularly keen to hear from members of ethnic minorities and disability groups as well as those with experience in Information Technology and Digital Public Relations (DPR).

The challenge brought by the pandemic has required us to innovate under pressure and some of the results are leading us towards exciting new opportunities, new styles of service and partnership working. One of our ambitious missions is to implement new, exciting services to meet local needs within the impact of the global pandemic.

Join our committed team of Trustees to help guide us in this next stage. If you want to work with and for older people in Bristol, now is the time to make a difference.

What our trustees have said:

Chair of Trustees, Mina Malpass says, “I joined Age UK Bristol five years ago because I was so impressed with how such a small organisation seemed able to achieve so much. Their success with Bristol Ageing Better (BAB) has brought so much value to many other older people’s organisations across the whole of Bristol. It inspired me to want to be part of this lively, vibrant and very local organisation.”

Previous Treasurer, Geoff Clements also shared his experience, “I was treasurer at Age UK Bristol for some 10 years, and it was always a stimulating experience; at times it seemed almost impossible to obtain adequate funding, at others a generous legacy or gift made life a lot easier. But I was always conscious that the work the charity was undertaking was vital to the older people of Bristol, and that we had to keep on providing those services as best we could. My fellow Trustees and the staff were inspirational to work with, and it was very rewarding to hear the experiences of those we were able to help.”
