City of Wells Almshouses – Trustee Opportunities

We are looking to widen the range of skills and experience within our Board and are now seeking applications from suitably motivated and qualified individuals 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 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, 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 32 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.
