Trustees’ Week 2022

Scotland’s Third Sector Governance Forum would like to invite you to get involved in supporting and promoting Trustees’ Week 2022 (7-11 November 2022). 

Read on for more information about Trustees’ Week, ideas for how to get involved, and communications resources.

About Trustees’ Week 

Trustees’ Week is a UK-wide initiative to celebrate the achievements of trustees.  

OSCR estimates there are 183,000 charity trustees in Scotland. There are 60,000-80,000 more trustees supporting non-charitable voluntary organisations. That’s over 250,000 trustees in Scotland, giving their time and skills on a voluntary basis to steer the work of charities and voluntary organisations.  

Trustees’ Week is an opportunity to inform, inspire, support and celebrate. To: 

  • share helpful information, resources and learning opportunities for trustees 
  • inspire people to consider becoming a trustee   
  • signpost support for trustees, and for organisations seeking to recruit trustees 
  • celebrate all the terrific trustees out there! 

If you are planning on hosting an event for Trustees’ Week and would like this added to the Trustees’ Week website, please complete this quick form.
