Getting on Board’s mission is to change the face of trusteeship through advocacy, training and partnership working. That’s why the Getting on Board Membership Scheme offers members the opportunity to join the Getting on Board advisory network. This collective of like-minded organisations can learn from one another’s shared experience and play an active role in Getting on Board’s mission via regular regular annual meetings and a series of networking events.
There are some 100,000 trustee vacancies at any one time in the UK, yet 75% of all charities struggle to find trustees. Working with their founder partners King’s College London, Allen & Overy law firm, Peridot Partners recruitment, and M&G savings and investment business, Getting on Board Membership Scheme is making trusteeship more accessible to more than 50,000 employees and students.
