Trustee and Governance

Trustees (also known as directors, board members, governors, or committee members) are responsible for ensuring their organisation meets its purpose and uses its resources appropriately to do so.

The network is an opportunity to meet other trustees and committee members, and share and learn from your peers about topics related to good governance. As well as hearing about events targeted at trustees and committee members you will also be signed up to an e-list to help you contact other network members.

To hear more or to join the network email Fabia Bates on

Our network is open to all of our member organisations and to voluntary and community organisations operating across our areas where capacity allows.

“The governance network has helped develop the knowledge and skills of our board of trustees. This has resulted in stronger governance of our organisation.” CEO, LGBT Switchboard
