Getting on Board helps find the best possible volunteers to serve on charity boards. We support and train charities to improve their board recruitment, and we help individuals and their employers to find the best possible opportunities.


We need a #BoardRevolution so that charity boards are as diverse as the communities and causes they serve. Will you join us?

Charity boards are simply not diverse enough. Charities are missing out on incredible talent and impact, while potential trustees are being shut out of trusteeship.

If you're a person of colour, apply for a dedicated bursary to join our Charity Board Leadership Programme.
