Launch of 'Get on Board' trustee recruitment campaign
The Governance Hub has launched its Get on Board trustee recruitment campaign, in partnership with the Charity Commission and Volunteering England. The Get on Board campaign aims to raise awareness of trusteeship and encourage people to register their interest in becoming one. Research commissioned by the Get on Board campaign has found that people have concerns for the future and are frustrated in their jobs. Very few people have thought of trusteeship as a way of making a difference to the causes they care about. Trusteeship is a great way for people to make a difference, whilst gaining new skills and experience and getting satisfaction.

responsibility for a charity or voluntary and community sector
organisation ultimately rests with its board of trustees. So it is
essential that these board members have the awareness, knowledge and
confidence to identify and manage the risks associated with their role.
Reducing the Risks is a new Governance Hub publication that provides invaluable guidance on assessing and minimising the risks associated with trustee liabilities.
