    About this event

    Many trustees tell us they didn’t have a clear overview of their responsibilities when inducted into their board.

    In this free one hour session, we'll take you through your trustee duties in a clear and engaging way. There will be a chance to ask questions and we'll signpost you to further support. This session is also suitable as a refresher for existing trustees.

    By the end of this introductory webinar you will understand:

    • The role of a trustee
    • The main duties and responsibilities of a trustee
    • How to carry out your trusteeship duties effectively

    The webinar is free to attend with an option to make a donation of your choice in checkout. We are very grateful for all donations received, please know the real difference you are making in changing the face of trusteeship by donating.

    This webinar runs monthly for an hour, from 5:30-6:30pm and is held on Zoom. We appreciate that the timing of the webinar might not suit everyone so everyone who registers for the event will receive a link to view the recording to watch in their own time. We'd encourage you to attend the webinar live if you can, as there'll be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share your specific circumstances.

    Please also get in touch ( if you'd like us to run this session for your board or network in-house.
