A charity is planning to recruit more trustees.

Age UK Northumberland is looking to appoint more people to its board in a bid to add knowledge and experience to take the charity forward.

Andrew Marsh, chairman of trustees said: “It is exciting times for the charity and we are continuously moving forward so that we can provide the highest quality of services and care.

“I am very proud of the team we have in place at Age UK Northumberland and I am keen to add to our dynamic and committed board.

“We would like to hear from anybody who is passionate about making a difference to the lives of older people, and we would particularly welcome more trustees with a variety of skill sets and experiences from home care, facilities and property management, medical and NHS backgrounds.

“Not only is this a great opportunity to make a difference to the lives of older people, it is also a chance to gain experience of being a non-executive director for anyone who is interested in developing their own skills in this area.”

The board meets four to five times per year. Trustees are encouraged to support charity sub-committees.

Age UK Northumberland is an independent charity which provides services for older adults throughout Northumberland. The central service is free information, advice and advocacy; other services are designed to meet local needs and include day care, home care, befriending exercises and falls prevention classes and lunch clubs.
