Getting On Board – Where are all of the young trustees?

  • Start: 12th March, 2024 @ 5:00PM
  • End: 12th March, 2024 @ 6:00PM
  • Online

Two thirds of trustees are aged over 50 (Taken on Trust research, 2017). This is particularly problematic for charities which work with children and young people but whose trustees haven’t been able to call themselves “young” for some decades.

Join the Young Trustees Movement and Getting on Board to discuss the barriers and enablers to involving young people in trusteeship.

Hear what younger leaders, and those working alongside them, have learned from their work on embedding young trustees in London charities.
