Governor and Trustee Information



Are you interested in becoming a Charity Trustee?

Would you like to support a charity, community group or social enterprise in the local area by volunteering as a Trustee? None of these organisations would be able to run without their Trustees who are also known as committee members, governors, directors or board members. Why not come along to one of our ‘Let’s Talk Trustees’ workshops to:-

  • Answer your questions about what being a Charity Trustee means.
  • Help you feel more confident and positive about taking the role on.

The workshop is aimed at those considering taking on a Trustee role for the first time as well as newly-appointed Trustees. However, we would also welcome attendees who already have some Trustee experience to both refresh their knowledge and to share their experience.

If you would like to attend one of the workshops, please complete this short online form – Click here

Once we have enough people to run a session then we will be in touch. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact Nicola Norman, Community Development Officer –
