Solicitor To Chair Regional Age UK Board

louise southwell age ukA solicitor who works regularly in Scilly has been appointed Chair of the Board of Trustees for Age UK in Scilly and Cornwall.

Louise Southwell has been on the board of the charity for six years.

She visits the islands regularly in her professional role as a partner and solicitor at the local law firm, Coodes Solicitors, where she specialises in services for the elderly.

Louise says her experience is that older people are often overlooked in the community.

They need the voice that Age UK provides to champion their issues, she says.

The charity operates the popular Buzza Bus transport service here on the islands.
