Almshouses seek new Trustees for their Board

Date Posted : October 26th, 2021

The almshouses (CWA) is looking to widen the range of skills and experience within its Board and is now seeking applications from suitably motivated and qualified individuals to join the Charity as Trustees to help develop the future plans for these historic buildings in the heart of Wells.

Your skills: Can you play an active role in raising awareness, locally and further afield, of CWA’s role as a housing provider for older people in need who are residents of Wells or have a local connection? In the above respects, the professional backgrounds that are of particular interest to us are those gained at a strategic level in fundraising, Finance/accounting, marketing/media relations, legal, or housing sectors.

Your commitments: Our Trustees are expected to attend quarterly Board Meetings, contribute to other committees and attend the events open to the public that are arranged during the year. These are voluntary appointments but out-of-pocket expenses are offered.

About us: Our 33 Almshouse properties are centrally located in the City of Wells and our Charity traces its origins back to 1424. In recent years we have been undertaking the progressive modernisation of our properties. This work is ongoing and we are also looking to create additional accommodation in the near future. Detailed information about CWA is available on our website:

If you are interested: Please contact Martin Thomas, CEO for an application pack. Telephone: 07460 257103; Email: The closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday 14th December 2021.
