Welcome to Trustees’ Week 2023

Monday 6th November 2023

It’s #TrusteesWeek! The time of year when we celebrate the amazing contribution made by trustees for their charities and recognise the difference they make. You can find out about this week’s range of events and access free guidance and resources at

Trustees’ Week is a time for us to come together to celebrate the achievements of nearly one million trustees across the UK. Thank you for the time, commitment, and effort you bring to your charities to help them thrive. #TrusteesWeek

Did you know that many organisations, large and small, cannot exist without a committee of Trustees or Board Members?  These unpaid volunteers ensure that the organisation adheres to its governing principles and does all that it practicably can to achieve its mission.  They use their life experience and skills to help the organisation to be the best that it can be.

Every day this week we will be celebrating and publicising the work that Trustees do – keep an eye on the website for more!
