Applications are now open for a new trustee recruitment programme: Trustee Recruitment Pathways.


If your charity struggles to recruit trustees (and you are not alone: 74% of charities find it difficult to recruit the trustees they need), this free programme could be for you.


The programme will focus on using innovative, free and low-cost advertising and recruitment methods to widen the pool of people currently serving as trustees.


To apply, charities must be registered in England and Wales, have an annual income of under £2million and be struggling to recruit the trustees they need to thrive.


There is no cost to participating charities, other than their time, as the costs will be covered by Comic Relief, The Pears Foundation and the Anjoli Stewart Fund.


The deadline for applications is Friday 16th February 2018.

Apply here: 

Further information and expectations of participating charities can be found in this document.


We will subsequently produce free guidance for any charity on how to recruit trustees effectively and cheaply.
