Become a Trustee


Becoming a trustee is an incredibly rewarding way to volunteer not just your time, but also your ideas. As part of an organisation's governing board, you play a crucial role in the charity's overall direction. You'll volunteer alongside other board members, making decisions collaboratively and acting in the best interests of the organisation. It's a great role for someone to share experience they've gained from their career, and also a fantastic opportunity for younger or less experienced volunteers to expand their knowledge and realise their potential. Not sure what you would give? Don't be daunted - trusteeship is all about learning how your charity works, and making decisions based on the experience you gain on the go. Your perspective is just as valuable as your skill-set. 

Trustee boards vary greatly in their structure, regularity of meetings, and overall culture. Board meetings are likely to take place between quarterly and monthly, with plenty of preparation to make important decisions about the charity. Every trustee board is different, so take a look at all the opportunities below. Perhaps there's one which will be a perfect fit...
