Age Concern Liverpool and Sefton is looking for new recruits to expand and strengthen its board of trustees.
The charity is seeking individuals with skills in social care, finance, communications and fund raising to support its work as it enters an exciting new phase. The trustees recently appointed Sandra McCaughley as Chief Executive and Jacinta Cannon as Director of Operations to lead the charity’s day to day operations and develop new services.
The impact of the pandemic and lockdowns has significantly affected older people in our community. Identified as a high risk group, they faced the toughest restrictions with many unable to benefit from the switch to online support and services. This has affected people’s mental health, confidence, mobility and cognitive functioning. As restrictions lift, we need to increase efforts to address these negative impacts and help older people to lead independent, fulfilled lives.
Rupert Lowe, Chair of the Board of Trustees said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Sandra and Jacinta to Age Concern Liverpool and Sefton. They bring with them valuable expertise, experience and enthusiasm that will drive our progress over the coming years. I look forward to working with them and expanding the Board of Trustees to guide and support them.’
Age Concern Liverpool and Sefton has a long and rich history. Established in 1928 by Liverpool’s first female councillor, Eleanor Rathbone, it was the first committee in the country set up specifically for older people. Over the years, the charity has trialled many exciting, new initiatives to protect and promote the wellbeing of older people. The charity’s achievements were recognised in 2013 when it was awarded Freedom of the City by Liverpool City Council.
