Trustees' Week 7-11 November 2022

Making a difference in changing times

Now in its 12th year, Trustees’ Week is a chance for us to come together to celebrate all that volunteer trustees do for our sector.

The theme for Trustees Week this year is Making a difference in changing times, and having a strong board of trustees and the right governance practices can really help to strengthen  and guide your organisation through these changes.

Explore some of the resources, training and volunteering opportunities for trustees that we will be sharing throughout the week, and get involved by following us on Facebook or Twitter.

Resources for trustees

Help and guidance for trustees no matter where you are in your governance journey.

Trustee recruitment toolkit

Enrich your board with the right trustees – our guide will walk you through your trustee recruitment journey from planning and identifying what you need, advertising, interviewing and appointment, to induction. We’ve included some useful templates to help you along the way.


Our Essentials of Charity Governance training covers everything you need to know about becoming a great trustee, as set out in the Charity Good Governance Code.
