Trustee to join our Board

This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading role in a major charity, supporting older people.
Flexible hours From Mon 20th Dec 2021

Age UK WD has a workforce of 115 staff & 200 volunteers, and spends over £2million each year making a real difference to the lives of thousands of older people across the whole of Wakefield District.

We are a large local Organisation providing a wide and complex range of services but we have a simple mission: - to support older people to live independently and enjoy their lives, this is at the heart of everything we do. We are proud that, during the recent pandemic, our charity continued to provide Personalised Emotional and Wellbeing Support, Befriending, Home Shopping, Hospital Transport, Personal and Domestic Support and we found new ways to meet emerging needs. We work closely with the Council and NHS providing integrated support through their service hubs, and deliver services directly out of Pinderfields and Dewsbury Hospitals. We receive over 300 calls into our Single Point of Contact each week and every year, we help people secure over £3million in benefits they are entitled to. The Board wishes to appoint several new Trustees from across all sectors of our communities. These are unsalaried, expenses-paid roles, requiring up to 2 days per month commitment.
