Enthusiasm and commitment to improving the lives of older people is the primary quality required, and a willingness to occasionally get involved at the centre.

We enjoy working together and would welcome a new member to to enhance our skills set.

What difference will you make?

This is a vital role, helping to ensure continuity of our service for vulnerable adults in a rural community which has seen a steady depletion of support facilities. As a trustee, you will have a real opportunity to offer your unique skill set to help the strategic progression of the charity at a pivotal moment in it's thirty year history. This is a chance to make a real and lasting difference in the community.
