Trustees are an integral part of our team at Age UK Bath & North East Somerset, working intimately with senior executives, the leadership team, and internal staff to orchestrate our vision of growing an age-friendly community that enables individuals to age well.

With a specific focus on our strategy, marketing, service offerings, technological developments, funding, human resources, and people agenda, this role embodies and drives our mission: to empower and support individuals in their ageing journey, enabling them to live with confidence, celebrate their lives, and have access to the right support to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives.

Trustees are a guardian of our values. They promote empowerment, advocating for older people to live life on their own terms, with dignity, respect, and independence. They foster inclusion, striving to create a diverse and inclusive community where everyone is valued and can participate. They champion collaboration, working alongside older people and other stakeholders to effect positive change. They are dedicated to delivering high-quality services that meet the identified needs of older people, consistently seeking to improve our practices and processes. 

Finally, they uphold accountability, taking responsibility for our actions towards the older people we serve, our community, our funders, and our stakeholders.

In their role, the Trustee will be instrumental in achieving our goals and objectives. They will ensure access to information and advice for older people, supporting them in making informed decisions about their lives. 

They will provide opportunities for social interaction and community participation, advocate for the rights and needs of older people, challenge age discrimination, and promote positive images of ageing.

Moreover, the Trustee will engage with decision-makers and community leaders, support community-led initiatives promoting healthy ageing and social inclusion, and encourage the wider community to recognise the value of older people. They will ensure that our services continuously adapt to the changing needs of our community, and that we build strong partnerships with other organisations and service providers.

Ultimately, Trustees will carry the torch of our mission, embody our values, and ensure the realisation of our goals, thereby playing a critical role in shaping the future of Age UK Bath & North East Somerset.

In addition to the above statutory duties, each trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.
