We are looking for dedicated, passionate people of all ages and levels of experience to join the Age UK Board of Trustees
Our trustees are the guardians of Age UK and as a trustee, you will be making sure that we are doing the best we possibly can for older people in the UK.
In this role you will be working with a team of highly skilled professionals from a variety of backgrounds including charity, government, finance and education. Our trustees have a lot to share with new board members, so you are guaranteed to come away with rewarding experience.
Age UK has over 130 local partners supporting older people all over the UK. We have an award winning information and advice line that supports 5.2 million people each year.
We are the only UK charity dedicated to helping those older people who need it most; people who are lonely, in poverty or dealing with long-term health conditions. As a trustee for Age UK, you will be making the vital difference to those people’s lives.
As a trustee you will be expected to attend 7 trustee meetings a year – 6 board meetings and one away day.
The initial commitment from you would be to service a 2 year term. At the end of this two years, you and the Chair of the Board could agree to continue for another 3 years. You can then choose to continue for another 3, but can only serve a maximum of 8 years.
