Trustee Week 2017 Special

Are you ready for the Board?

Working as part of a team, trustees have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, a charity’s management and administration. They play a very important role, almost always voluntary, in a sector that contributes significantly to the character and wellbeing of the country.

Trustees come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring all kinds of skills and experiences to the role. Read about Victoria’s experience of being a trustee HERE
