Emergency Transport Attendant Volunteer Roles in Liverpool
Could your knowledge, skills and experience make a positive difference to Age UK York? We are an independent charity with the mission of:‘Making a positive difference by putting older people, and the people around them, at the heart of all we do; working with partner organisations, to improve the quality of later life and provide effective, timely support for those who need it the most.’
Age UK York (AUKY) is one of the largest independent charities in York and every year reaches thousands of older people and their carers, and has a high level of recognition across the City’s statutory authorities, voluntary sector and the public. Our services – some developed and delivered in productive partnerships – include Day Clubs, Help in the Home, Befriending, Carer Respite, Home from Hospital, Keep Your Pet and Information and Advice.
In challenging times for all charities, AUKY has continued to adapt and evolve to offer a range of relevant services and support for older people and extend our reach to try to meet need as effectively as possible, whilst increasing our active involvement with partners towards the collective effort here in York. To build and grow the charity to meet increasing need, we are seeking to expand our trustee board - complementing the skills of our present Trustees and broadening our Board’s diversity – with the addition of up to three new trustees.
We welcome applications from all age groups and backgrounds, and we are particularly looking for skills from amongst the following: fundraising and income generation; accountancy and financial management; building stakeholder relationships and co-production; legal and HR expertise. Board and/or senior level management experience would be helpful, although not essential.
We currently hold eight noard meetings per annum. Preparation and attendance at these, plus involvement in other committees, task groups and projects, are likely to require a time commitment of 12-15 days per annum in total.
This is a volunteer role, offering the opportunity to contribute actively to the lives of older people in our communities, and gain leadership and board experience with a collaborative team of committed trustees.
