Trustees' Week

Trustees’ Week is an annual event showcasing the great work of charity trustees, the volunteers who run charities in the UK.

The week usually takes place in November and we mark the occasion by offering free access and discounts on some of our resources for trustees, because we want to support trustees in doing the great work they do. In the meantime, we have resources to support trustees available all-year-round.

We focussed on governance in our November 2017 podcast.
