Trustees’ Week 2023: 6th-10th November

Trustees’ Week 2023 is happening from Monday 6th to Friday 10th November. It is an annual week of celebration and thanks to the nearly one million trustees across the UK. As a partnership of organisations that support the VCSE sector, Empowering Communities is encouraging people to take time to celebrate the achievements of trustees. Thank you for the time, commitment and effort you bring to your charities to help them thrive.

This year’s theme

This year’s theme is: “Many voices. Working together. With purpose.” We know the VCSE sector makes a huge and positive impact on society and dedicated themselves to an enormous variety of good causes. That’s why we’re taking the the opportunity to celebrate the individual talents, viewpoints and experiences each trustee brings to their board and their collective decision making and how diversity can help make a charity stronger. It is important to remember that there is a wealth of guidance and support that VCSE groups can draw on, to survive and thrive. The Empowering Communities Partnership provides resources for the sector throughout the year. You can see the events we have planned here.

More information

Throughout the week, the Trustees’ Week website will offer information and resources to support trustees. There will also be plenty of opportunities to connect with others to share experiences. You an also find out how to become a trustee. You will also be able to develop your skills through our wide range of events, training and guidance. We know that the dedication of trustees safeguards beneficiaries’ interests, builds public trust, and enhances fundraising efforts. In the UK’s sometimes complex regulatory landscape, trustees navigate legal obligations, ensuring compliance and adherence to best practices. These resources are there to support trustees as they go about their important tasks. More information can be found here:
