HOW WE CAN HELP
Looking to support your staff during COVID-19?
Some of your staff now have a lot of extra time on their hands, and may be wondering what to do with it. If they’re looking for a fulfilling way to give back while learning new skills and advancing their careers, becoming a charity trustee could be for them! Our expert-led, interactive workshops equip them with the knowledge and confidence they need to become a charity trustee. A great option to engage staff who are currently furloughed.
