What is a trustee?

Trustees are volunteers who have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it does what it was set up to do. They make sure the charity meets its goals and responsibilities, and is fit for purpose. They may be known by other titles, such as directors, board members, governors or committee members. Whatever they are called, trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run.

Have you thought about being a trustee?  Volunteering as a charity trustee is a great way to make a difference and support a cause you care about.

Our Volunteer Coordinator, Mel Willson, joined the Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce for a virtual Question & Answer session about what it means to be a trustee, finding the right opportunity and what’s involved.
