What is a charity trustee?
Trustees have the overall legal responsibility for a charity. The law describes charity trustees as ‘the persons having the general control and management of the administration of a charity’ (Charities Act 2011, section 177).
A trustee role is an opportunity to use your professional skills and life experiences to make a difference to a cause you believe in, and you’ll benefit too!

The first week in November is National Trustees' Week. To celebrate, we host our annual Hertfordshire Trustee Conference in collaboration with Hertfordshire Community Foundation. Each year, there are a range of excellent speakers and workshops on topics from wellbeing and resilience, the future of boards, and all the things you wish you had known when you became a trustee!
If you need additional support, we are happy to help you find a suitable role – just get in touch via email [email protected] For most roles, you can contact the charity directly by clicking 'join now' via their listings.
