Trustee Recruitment: We’re here to help you

16 October 2017

Trustees' Week is running from 13-17 November 2017 and is your chance to focus your attention on recruiting, training or promoting your trustees.

Trustees' Week logoThe requirement to recruit new Trustees is an ever-present challenge - and in our recent Support Needs’ Survey to charities and community groups in Buckinghamshire, a huge 30% of respondents said that they needed help to boost their Boards with additional vital leadership skills.

With Trustees’ Week just around the corner, we’ve been busy putting together resources to give you an extra helping hand – here’s what’s in store:

It’s all in her latest blogour Lead for Volunteering, Hazel Finney, discusses the fantastic resources available for you to download from our partner Reach Volunteering: from a Board skills’ audit, to sample Trustee role descriptions, and how you can build a Board for the Digital Age – Reach has got it all covered! 

Get involved in the national celebration and access additional resources… have a nose around the Charity Commission’s Trustees’ Week website.

So much more to come… during Trustees’ Week we’ll be publishing blogs from Trustees in Bucks, as well as appearing on the Huxley & Howe show from Wycombe Sound on 13 November.  Keep your eyes peeled for all of this!

Save the date… our next Trustee Conference and Fair are on 28 April. Pop the date in your diary now!  More info to follow soon....
