Maintaining an Overview – the Manor Trust’s Governing Committee

If you have run a Nursing or Residential Care Home or been professionally involved with these types of homes in some way, then we are looking for a committee member, most likely a former care professional (or similar) with an interest in the older person in care and support the charity offers.

That interest would be in seeing that our residents' care and comfort being delivered by the Lodge Registered Manager and the team of carers is supported by a member of the Governing Committee who has some knowledge and experience in the delivery of good care of the older person. 

Please enquire for more about volunteering for this particularly interesting and rewarding role by going to our Contact us page and contact the Trust Manager.
