The Abbeyfield Uxbridge Society are looking for Trustees to join our Board and we would welcome applications from people with experience in Finance, Estate Management, Company Secretary/Legal or Provision of Elderly Services within the Health, Social Care or Charity sector.
We are an independent local charity providing supported living accommodation for older residents, with 30 bed-sit rooms with ‘en suite’ shower and toilet facilities. Whilst we are locally based, in the Borough of Hillingdon, we are affiliated with the national and international Abbeyfield Society charity.
What will you be doing?
We hold up to a maximum of 6 Board meetings per year, including an Annual General Meeting when residents and other interested people can attend. Trustees use their knowledge/skills and experience to carry out a non-executive role to ensure good governance of the charity and to enable the House Manager and staff to best carry out their duties in support of our residents.
Our Board is essential to the provision of good governance, ensuring the Charity is in the best position to meet its charitable objects, providing and maintaining a safe and secure home for our elderly residents.
What are we looking for?
We are seeking up to 6 Trustees to join our governing Board, who will bring a variety of skills/background to enable us to continue to run the home we provide for our residents. In particular we would welcome applications from people with experience in Finance, Estate Management, Company Secretary/Legal or Provision of Elderly Services within the Health, Social Care or Charity sector.
What's in it for the volunteer?
Our 'Home' is a warm and welcoming place where our residents can live in the company of others and be supported as they spend their later years in pleasant surroundings. Our Trustees use the skills and knowledge they have to give support and advice to enable the Charity to provide and maintain the accomodation and the services for the residents.
We normally hold 4 Board meetings per year, starting at 10.30 am for 2 1/2hrs. Also periodic social events to which Trustees would be invited.
How to apply
Applications are through the Reach volunteering website.
Deadline: 23rd July 2021
