Opportunity to chair one of Wales’ leading national charities - May deadline
Published on 23 July 2018 02:38 PM
Age Cymru, the national charity for older people in Wales, is looking to appoint a new chair of trustees to lead the organisation into the future.
The charity, formed from the merger of Help the Aged and Age Concern Cymru in 2009, can trace its roots in Wales back to 1946 so it has an incredible record of supporting and serving older people.
Sadly our previous chair and longstanding trustee, Rhuddlan based Meirion Hughes, passed away shortly after taking up office. So we are looking for a chair who will build upon the successes that Meirion and his predecessor Dr Bernadette Fuge helped deliver, particularly with our influencing work and with our high media profile.
Our new chair will be joining the organisation at an exciting time. This summer we will appoint a new chief executive, we will be making ourselves at home in new offices, and we will be finalising our new strategic plan.
We are looking for a Chair with passion, drive and commitment. Our Chair will be an inspirational leader able to champion the rights of older people, with a strong empathy and commitment to the purpose, culture and values of Age Cymru.
We are also looking for new trustees to help us on our journey to create an age friendly Wales, so if you think you have the passion, drive and energy to help us deliver our vital work please get in touch before the end of May 2018.
