In 2018, we piloted Trustee Recruitment Pathways with support from Comic Relief, The Pears Foundation and The Anjoli Stewart Fund. We worked with 30 charities all over England and Wales to run open, professional trustee recruitment campaigns to support the charities to recruit the voluntary board members that they needed to continue to thrive.
* 100% of the charities advertising for new trustees as part of the programme recruited new trustees;
* 68% feel they are better equipped to deal with the challenges facing their charity than before;
* 35% feel their board is more representative of service users now;
*65% feel their board is more diverse now.
We are now inviting other funders to partner with us this year on Trustee Recruitment Pathways 2019, either to offer their grantees access to the programme as part of their "Funder Plus" support, or to offer bursaries to support organisations in their interest area to participate.
Charities can also pay to particiipate themselves. The cost is £550 per organisation.
