Could you be an OPAL trustee?

OPAL, the Rural Community Services (RCS) that provides services that improve rural life for people, is expanding and now needs to recruit new trustees to join its board of trustees. Trustees have a range of professional backgrounds and skills and the people we are looking for will want to make a difference in the lives of older people. We are all passionate about our mission and we are looking for others who feel the same.  No previous board experience is needed although it would be helpful. We welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds. We will offer trustees training and we pay out of pocket expenses to our trustees. Enthusiasm and commitment are the most important qualities we are looking for.

We have an application pack available from Linda Middleton, our Administrator. Please contact Linda at:  If you would like to contact us informally to find out more about the organisation or the role please email your details to Jane Colville, our current Chair at

Feel free to learn more about us by looking at our website,

The closing date for applications is 30.04.17
