Being a Trustee of Age UK Norwich

Age UK Norwich exists to enable older people in Norwich to live life to the full. It does this by providing information and advice services for all and direct care and support for older people who are isolated, living with mental health and other problems. It also seeks to influence the provision of other services through enabling older people to have a voice and through direct involvement in strategic discussions. 

It is a medium-sized charity and a company limited by guarantee. It has approximately 33 staff and over 100 volunteers, so it is very much a ‘traditional’ voluntary organisation. Its work is funded by a mixture of agreements with the Council, trust income and donations and legacies. As much of its costs are staff-related and incurred to maintain on-going services, maintaining sustained income is a major challenge. 

Our trustee body is able to leave management to a small team of senior managers and a CEO, but does maintain a more hands-on approach than larger charities. We also value the fact that Trustees as individuals engage with staff and volunteers in different ways both to inform themselves and show support. They are a key group of volunteers. 

However, their primary role is as trustees of the assets and mission of the organisation and they carry the ultimate responsibility for the work of Age UK Norwich.
