We are looking for experienced and knowledgeable trustees to join our board of trustees.
Could you help us to make Herefordshire & Worcestershire a great place to grow older?
We have recently welcomed a number of new Trustees to the Board, so only have one vacancy at the moment. We are looking to recruit someone with finance experience. Please note this is a voluntary unpaid role. Find out more about this role here
Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire was established in October 1990 and is an independent charity providing a wide range of services for older people from all communities and backgrounds in Herefordshire & Worcestershire. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all older people across Herefordshire and Worcestershire by promoting choice, opportunities, and independence.
We offer care services, information, wellbeing and active ageing opportunities for people aged 50 plus. We also support other groups working with older people, and we offer training for professionals. We raise issues of concern for older people, work with local media, contribute to campaigns and sit on advisory groups and statutory agency advisory bodies.
Our trustees are essential to our success as a charity. The role is essentially strategic, with Trustees focussing on the overall direction of the organisation and monitoring performance of the organisation and senior management.
As a trustee, you will set our direction and hold staff to account, making sure we are always doing the best we possibly can for older people across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Trustees focus on the overall direction of the organisation, whilst monitoring performance of the Organisation and the Leadership Team.
You'll find more information in our Trustee Information Pack and we always welcome people getting in touch with us for an informal chat before a formal application is made.
