Trustees play an essential role in our society, making our charity sector work. It’s a hugely rewarding role but it’s important to know what’s involved before committing.
Trustees are the volunteers responsible for the oversight and direction of charities. A good board of trustees will bring a wide range of skills to a charity and help it make a difference. It’s a challenging role that suits professionals from a range of backgrounds and is a fantastic way of helping a charity achieve its aims. Time commitment varies hugely between different charities. Often trustee boards will meet quarterly, sometimes monthly and differing levels of support may be required in between.
To hear more about volunteering your professional skills, come along to our trustee matching and volunteering event. You’ll get the chance to hear about what becoming a trustee involves and also meet local charities for whom you can make a difference. We’ll also show you where to keep an eye out for future positions that become available.
If you’re interested in becoming a trustee or would like to hear more about other ways to volunteer, then come along at 12.15 Thursday 09 June. There will be a short presentation about what trusteeship involves with the chance to ask questions and meet the charities you could be working with. You can sign up here for free.
If you can’t make it from the start, then feel free to drop in and ask us questions or meet charities looking for trustees.
For any charities looking to attend to find new trustees we still have some spaces available so email firstname.lastname@example.org for a space.
