Welcome to our second ever Festival of Trusteeship!

This year the schedule is stuffed with exciting events for people who want to become trustees, trustees who want to keep learning and developing, and for charity leaders who want to understand best practice in trustee recruitment and diversity.

 

We have an action-packed week with workshops, webinars, panel discussions, and more. We've grouped the sessions into easy to identify streams, according to whether you're an aspiring trustee, an existing trustee looking for training to skill up, a charity leader who wants to diversify their board, or anyone up for taking part in a lively and informed discussion about what trusteeship means in 2021. 

All of this has been made possible by our brilliant sponsors Ecclesiastical Insurance. Thanks to their generosity we've been able to made the festival as affordable as possible.
