Board of trustees
Our trustees are unpaid volunteers who are ultimately responsible for the governance, leadership and financial viability of the charity. They set the strategic direction to enable us to work towards achieving our vision.
The above are all trustees of Friends of the Elderly.
Friends of the Elderly would like to acknowledge that Nurole was instrumental in recently sourcing additional trustees to fill vacancies on our board.
Members of the board of trustees are also members of at least one Board committee. The principal committees meet quarterly and are: Audit and Risk Committee; Resources and Investment Committee; and Strategic Delivery Committee. The Chair’s Committee, Nominations Committee, and Remuneration and Employment Committee meet as required.
Her Majesty The Queen
Friends of the Elderly has been fortunate to enjoy the patronage of The Queen since 1953. Through receptions at the palace, meeting the older people we work with, and supporting fundraising appeals, Her Majesty has helped us support thousands of people throughout the decades of her reign.
