We’re looking for trustees (including a new Chair) who are dedicated to helping us make a positive impact on the lives of people in West Sussex, Brighton & Hove.

Their role is to ensure that we comply with our governing document and other legal requirements. Trustees must do what is best for the charity to achieve its purposes, make balanced and informed decisions, and avoid personal conflicts of interest when making decisions. Trustees must act responsibly, reasonably and honestly.

Our trustees are also key to developing and delivering the strategy that will have the greatest impact on our key population groups.

A trustee position at Age UK West Sussex, Brighton and Hove is a volunteer role. It is unpaid but reasonable expenses can be claimed so as not to be a barrier to anybody wishing to apply.

Becoming a Trustee

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about making a difference and will bring new skills and a different perspective to our Board. All new trustees will receive an induction and support from existing trustees and the senior management team. Enthusiasm, the ability to engage positively with others and a strong commitment to further diversity, equality and inclusion are as important as experience.
