I volunteer as a trustee for Age UK Enfield and we are looking for more people who can join our board of trustees.

We are passionate about the older people of Enfield and run a wide range of services and activities for its many communities. We are also keen to reflect the diverse range of communities on our board as well as find someone with specific areas of expertise, such as human resources, IT, fundraising and business systems, so please do think about applying to share your skills and life experience if you think you might fit the bill.


This story is published by Enfield Dispatch, Enfield's free monthly newspaper and free news website. We are a not-for-profit publication, published by a small social enterprise. We have no rich backers and rely on the support of our readers. Donate or become a supporter.


So, why am I a trustee? I work in the arts and originally asked members of the Parker Day Centre for people living with dementia to help contribute their stories for a new theatre show. I was so impressed with the dedication and commitment of the staff to improving the lives of older people that I wanted to help.

I had also used Age UK Enfield myself as a carer for older parents and found this charity to be truly a life saver, with a personal and caring approach when you are trying to come to terms with a diagnosis of dementia and find your way through the maze of issues and benefits for older people.

If you want to give back to your community and support our older people in Enfield, please do follow the link below and apply. We look forward to hearing from you!
