The North East needs more trustees. There are 6900+ charities and not for profit organisations working across the North East all of which need outstanding governance to thrive.
Volunteering a few days a year to deliver effective trusteeship is a powerful way to support and develop the work of essential organisations making a huge difference to the lives of thousands of people across the North East.
Trusteeship is hugely rewarding. As well as the satisfaction that comes from knowing you are part of a healthy and vibrant civil society, you’ll develop new skills, meet amazing new people and be part of interesting events, debates, initiatives and activities.
Whether you are a younger or older person, working in the private, public or voluntary sectors, retired, studying or unemployed, if this is something you are already thinking about or might be interested in, it would be great to see you at the event which is part of Trustee Week.
You'll have opportunity to:
- Learn about the role and why it is so important.
- Hear first hand from trustees and organisational leaders about their experience with a focus on demystifying the role of a trustee.
- Have one-to-one conversations with a range of trustees and organisational leaders to answer your questions and delve further into trusteeship.
- Express interest in a variety of follow-up initiatives being created to guide and support individuals into their first trusteeship position.
This event has been conceived and organised by members of the Better Governance Working Group of North East Together: Leaders Network for Social Change with contributions from Carol Botten (VONNE), Ian Dodds, George Gibbons (Cranfield Trust), Yvonne Harnett (Comfrey Project), Andrea King (North Tyneside Art Studio), Adam Lopardo (Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland), Duncan O’Brien, Tia Patterson (Shiney Row Advice & Resource Project), Leon Mexter (Youth Focus North East), Mike Millen (RCVDA), Yvonne Probert (Durham Community Action) coordinated by Robert Laycock (People Purpose Planning).
