Age Concern Gwent
Closing Date: 9 December 2019 Based: Newport, Wales
Age Concern’s origins can be traced back to the 2nd World War. The dislocation and breakdown of family life arising out of conscription led to a recognition that existing poor laws failed to provide effective support for older people throughout the UK separated from family support networks.
Discussions between government and voluntary organisations led to the establishment of a National Old People’s Welfare Committee and later to a network of local Old People’s Welfare Committees. These groups were run by volunteers and focused on issues specific to their communities. In 1971 the National Old People’s Welfare Committee changed its name to Age Concern and established itself nationally as a lobbying and campaigning body in addition to an organisation which provided services, training and research.
Over a period of time the local organisations adopted this new brand name and Age Concern Gwent became a registered charity in 1974. From very humble beginnings the organisation began to grow and by the mid 1980’s funding had been secured from Gwent County Council and a small handful of staff were employed to work with older people in the community.

Closing Date: 11 November 2019 Based: Central London
This is a hugely exciting time to join the Endometriosis UK trustee board as the organisation looks to expand and develop to achieve the changes that are needed to support those affected by endometriosis and to drive down diagnosis time (which is currently a shocking average of 7.5 years). We have just been successful in ensuring that menstrual wellbeing is taught to all children in school in England by 2020 and we’re pushing hard to ensure that this is extended across the UK. We’ve made huge strides in ensuring greater awareness of endometriosis, including through a photography exhibition with Rankin as part of our corporate partnership with Standard Life.
But there is still much more to do!
With four current trustees soon to reach their maximum 6-year length of service, we are looking for four new trustees – a Treasurer, Chair, Young Trustee and one other Trustee to build on this momentum to strengthen our organisation and bring about change for those with endometriosis.
