An extraordinary meeting of the charity's north-west region on 9 May agreed unanimously that Age Concern England had brought the charity into disrepute over Heyday, a membership body that helps older people prepare for and make the most of retirement.
A summary of the meeting, seen by Third Sector, concluded that Catherine Mcloughlin, the ACE chair of trustees, and Gordon Lishman, the director-general, should be held accountable for "their lack of judgement and leadership".
Robin Philpott, the chair of ACE's north-west federation, raised these points at the recent business committee of the Age Concern federation.
A spokesman for ACE said the points were not supported by representatives of any other region. The ACE trustee board meets today and will discuss Heyday.
