Help to make Age UK Hull fit for the future – Trustees being sought

Local charities today face many challenges in an environment of social and political change. Currently there are 36,900 people living in Hull who are over 65 (JSNA 2015). As our population lives longer, this number is expected to increase in the future. When placed against the backdrop of Hull being ranked as the 3rd most deprived local authority in England, many of our parents and grandparents will face unprecedented challenges as they age.
 
Age UK Hull want to ensure that all older people in our community, regardless of their needs and abilities, are supported to age well and remain independent. They want Age UK Hull to be regarded as the ‘go to ‘place for support for people’s parents, grandparents, neighbours and friends.
                                                                                                                      
From a bespoke building close to the city centre, Age UK Hull are positioned to respond in a positive and resourceful way, to support our community to live well and to love later life.
 
How you can help
They are looking to recruit new Trustees to their Board, in particular a Chair and Treasurer. They need the support of individuals with proven leadership and business skills and a strong sense of social value and equality; people who thrive off success and teamwork. Their ambitious strategic plan will put them at the forefront of adult social care. They want to lead the way as a progressive and modern local charity.
 
They need great leadership and vision to achieve that. They would love to hear from you or meet with you so they can share their vision and passion and bring their plans alive.
