We are getting ready to celebrate Trustees’ Week, the UK’s annual celebration of trustees which this year takes place from 4th-8th November 2019.
What is a trustee?
According to the Trustees’ Week website:
Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They help to make the UK the sixth most giving country in the world.
They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work.
Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for local organisations to add their volunteering roles for trustees to our website. Simply Connect makes it quick and easy to advertise the skills and experience of what you are looking for, and gives you direct contact with the applicants. It’s also open 24/7 and the trustee roles that are live on our website, will be featured in our Trustees’ Week campaign.
