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.
‘Stronger charities through good leadership’
Trustees’ Week 2016 celebrates the UK’s 1 million trustees and promotes the benefits of volunteering to be a trustee. Independent research shows that the UK is number 6 in the world for giving and volunteering and trustees play a vital role in making our charity sector so vibrant and strong. This year Trustees’ Week will focus on good governance and the skills needed to make trustees effective leaders.
At MS-UK, we would like to say a massive thank you to our amazing Trustees – they make our work possible and bring expertise to the table – we couldn’t do it without you!
