We want to have a wide range of people on the Board and seek to be representative of the diverse population of Brent. There is no need to have Trustee experience to apply although an interest in older people is necessary.

Board members are expected to attend up to ten meetings a year plus an Annual General Meeting; contribute advice & support on an ad hoc basis; and attend events. The Board currently meets on Zoom, every six weeks on Wednesdays from 5pm-6pm.
