Age UK - National Policy Sounding Board

Age UK’s National Engagement team is recruiting a small number of people aged 50+ to volunteer to join Age UK’s existing National Policy Sounding Board.

This opportunity offers a volunteer role in helping to shape and review Age UK’s external facing policy positions which we use to influence national and local government.  These cover a wide range of topic areas:

  • money matters

  • housing and homes

  • health & wellbeing

  • active communities

  • care & support

  • transport

This Sounding Board meets up to four times a year with Age UK’s Director of Policy & Research, and her team.

At Age UK we recognise the importance of promoting equality, valuing diversity and creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We want to include people with a mixture of life experiences, different backgrounds, different communities and varied interests. We are delighted to have a number of Age UK sounding board members from seldom heard groups including those with a disability, OLGBT and ethnic minority communities and would welcome new members from these and all other communities. In considering this opportunity, if you would find it helpful to talk to a current volunteer about what is involved in being a Policy Reviewer, please contact Liz Stacey, Divisional Services Co-ordinator, as listed above and we will see if we can accommodate your request.
