Introduction to Trusteeship

  • The Introduction to Trusteeship will suit those who are thinking about becoming a trustee, are new to trusteeship or those wanting a refresher on trusteeship. 
  • The workshop, delivered by Team London and Reach Volunteering, will give a broad overview of responsibilities and working practices, with talks from existing trustees who will share their experiences and answer questions.  

Good governance is the key to the survival and sustainability of any charity. Pressures on charities to deliver vital services increase every year, so an effective board of trustees is even more important in the current environment.

Do you have experience to share? A balance of skills, knowledge and lived experience, as well as a diversity of board members, can ensure an effective and productive board. Whether you have professional experience or have relevance to a certain cause, then do consider being a trustee - you will make a real impact in this vital and rewarding role.

Come to this introductory session and learn more about what would be expected of you as a trustee - and what you could get out of it.

Trustee Recruitment for Stronger Boards

Does your charity struggle to recruit the trustees you need? Could a broader range of trustees with professional skills, networks and wider life experiences give your charity the impetus to reach the next level?

Team London are working with specialists in trustee recruitment Getting on Board to deliver this workshop which will help you to identify which kinds of trustees would support the development of your charity and how to recruit them. You will leave with a clear idea of the type of trustees you need, a draft advert, a list of free places to advertise, and a plan to ensure that new trustees hit the ground running.

Attendance is open to trustees and senior staff of charities based in London. Places are limited and priority will be given to those charities where the CEO and a Trustee attend the workshop together.  It would be helpful if you have board approval to recruit new trustee(s) before you attend the workshop together and be prepared to start recruitment shortly after the session.

There are an estimated 100,000 vacancies for charity trustees -come along and find out how to create and recruit a stronger, more diverse Board.

Feedback from delegates
