Team London Trustee Programme

Team London Trustee Programme

Trustees are critical to a charity’s success. At Team London we are passionate about ensuring trustees and charity staff are properly supported in this important role.
To achieve this, see below for our free workshops in 2019.

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.

Working with Trustees: Recruitment and Diversity
  • 74% of small charities said they have difficulty recruiting trustees, so we listened to the feedback and created a charity-facing workshop: Working with Trustees: Recruitment and Diversity.
  • Applications open now

Does your charity struggle to recruit the trustees you need? 

Could a broader range of trustees with the skills, networks and experiences give your charity the impetus to reach the next level?

Team London and trustee recruitment specialists, Getting on Board, will deliver a workshop to help you identify which kinds of trustees would support the development of your charity - and how to recruit them. You will come away 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.

Feedback from delegates

I feel far more confident in searching for the right role, and what is involved in areas including legal responsibility, time commitment and how to search and apply. Delegate from 2018 Introduction to Trusteeship.

Excellent- very practical with where and how to advertise, as well as getting ideas from other delegates.  Working with Trustees:  Recruitment & Diversity .
