Become a Trustee

Being a trustee is all about leadership. It’s about having energy and ambition to lead a charity or community group. It’s about making sure an organisation is doing all it can to achieve its potential for the good of the beneficiary. It is a truly rewarding experience.

Trustees come from all walks of life; it doesn’t matter about your background or life stage.  Some trustee roles will be looking for specific skills, such as experience of senior management, finance or HR, but for many it will be your enthusiasm and drive that’s needed.
