Helen Moulinos, CEO of POhWER, says: “I am delighted to welcome our new Trustees who are leading experts in their fields. 

“We are so privileged to have the benefit of their leadership experience driving our strategic direction forward. I look forward to working closely with them.”

Tony Kildare, POhWER’s Board Chair, adds: “At a time of unprecedented change, political instability, economic challenge and financial uncertainty, demand has never been greater for advocacy services and support to uphold the human rights of those experiencing disadvantage, living with disability and be the voice for those unable to speak for themselves. 

“As the UK's leading all age advocacy and human rights charity, I am very pleased to welcome six new Trustees to the POhWER Board. Their diverse skills and expertise bring strength, breadth, and resilience to our organisation in our relentless pursuit of our charitable purpose to empower people to have a voice, and to make a real difference to their lives.”
