Age UK Mid- Devon are looking for two new Trustees to join their Board.  The need to provide support to the older members of our communities has never been more evident that during the recent pandemic.  Age UK Mid-Devon has been supporting older people in the Mid Devon area for the last 22 years.  It has become clear that to sustain and develop this into the future, it may be that a more joined up approach with other organisations across Devon is the way forward.  We are looking for people who can contribute to this conversation and bring their expertise and knowledge to the Board.  Specifically, a background in law and/or mergers and acquisitions would be incredibly valuable.  There is also the need for someone with a background in marketing/communications at a strategic level.
