We are currently recruiting for new Trustees
Age UK South Gloucestershire is an independent charitable company committed to making South Gloucestershire a great place to grow old and helping older people live the best lives they can.
As part of the Age UK network, we join national campaigns and access nationally produced resources, but locally we have to secure our own funding and function autonomously, with guidance from our own Board of Trustees. We are now seeking two additional trustees to enhance our range of skills and abilities.
We respond to more than 5,000 enquiries per year with our range of services, which include: Activity Day Centres, Befriending, Digital Inclusion, Walking Activities, Improving Homes and Wellbeing, Information & Advice provision, specialist Benefits Advice and Volunteering opportunities.
We are particularly interested in enhancing these skills on our Board:
- Voluntary Sector Experience & Knowledge
- Knowledge of the Health & Social Care Environment
Other skills and experience that we would welcome:
- Knowledge of the local community
- Equalities & Diversity
- Digital Strategy & Innovation
- Press and Public relations
We are keen to increase diversity within the Board, and applications are therefore strongly encouraged from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, people who describe themselves as Disabled, and young people as these are currently under-represented.

Please note that we may close applications at any time if sufficient enquiries have been received.
