Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
What are trustees?
Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They help to make the UK the sixth most giving country in the world.
They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work.
How many trustees are there?
The average trustee in England and Wales is 59 years old, and 55 in Northern Ireland.
There are many young trustees too with some 86,000 trustee positions held by 16-34 year olds (of which 2,611 in Northern Ireland).
