Trustee Vacancy – Huddersfield

Robert John Whitehead’s Almhouses is a small charity which operates eight almshouses in the Huddersfield area. The Almshouses are for the benefit of people with local connections to the Bradley and Deighton areas of Huddersfield who are aged 55 or over. The charity is looking for persons who are interested in joining the Board of Trustees.

Trustees are unpaid and must operate to standards set out by the Charity Commission. Collectively they are responsible for the smooth operation of the Almshouses, but the investment in time required is modest.

Trustee duties include:

  • attending monthly meetings of the Board
  • attend a “Walk Around” day once a year when the Trustees inspect the homes and meet the residents.

This is an opportunity to give something back to the local community. If you are interested, or want more information, please contact Cllr Bill Armer in the first instance. Email contact is preferred, on or by telephone on 01484 314314.
