Trustee opportunities

Date Posted : April 17th, 2023


The City of Wells 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 who have time to get involved in our plans for the future, to join the Charity as Trustees.

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?  The professional backgrounds that are of particular interest to us are those gained at a strategic level in housing, fundraising, marketing/media relations, or the legal sector.

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 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 Patrick McMahon for an application pack. Telephone: the office on 01749675813; Email: finance
