Trustees Needed For Hardwicke Charity

Vacancies have arisen for two trustees for the Susan Countess of Hardwicke charity, which administers the almshouses in Arrington.

These comprise four dwellings, built in 1846 by the fourth Countess of Hardwicke, in memory of her mother Susan. You would be one of seven voluntary trustees and your duties would involve attending meetings as required (normally two to four per year), to ensure the proper administration and care of the fund, the almshouses and their residents, with occasional site visits to inspect the properties and meet the residents.

While no special qualifications or skills are required an interest in resident welfare, safeguarding and policy development would be useful.
