This role is unremunerated
The Centre for Ageing Better is an independent charitable foundation funded by an endowment from the Big Lottery Fund and part of the ‘What Works’ network. We bring about change so that more people today and in the future benefit from their longer lives. We know what makes for a good later life; we know who is at risk of missing out. We’ve identified the changes we want to see and have begun work with and through others to make a significant positive impact.
Our organisation is moving from successful start up to become a major player in shaping the future of our ageing society and shifting attitudes and behaviours. To help us realise our ambitions, we are continually growing and developing, and are now looking for a new Trustee to join our established Board.
People bringing a variety of skills and experiences to our work will be welcome, such as how to promote change or how to understand the emotional as well as the intellectual dimensions of later lives and our role. We want people who are committed to listening to the views and voices of people in all their diversity, to understand what they value, want and what motivates them and how to engage them in our work to benefit from their longer later lives.
An established leader in your field, you must share our passion for improving later lives and bring the skills and experience to work with the wider Board and Executive to help us to realise our ambitions for bringing about widespread change.
We have a strong and clear vision for our role in society – to promote change for better later lives. If you believe you can offer the skills, experience and qualities we are seeking, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

Closing date is Monday 7th August 2017.
We are particularly keen to attract candidates who enrich our diversity as a Board and who live outside of London and the South East.
