This is our Star Opportunities Trustees Week special edition! Trustees Week runs from 12- 16 November and is a time to celebrate the important part that trustees play in the running of charities.
You can find some great Trustee Star Opportunities at the end of this newsletter, but before you head there lets find out more about what Trustees are.
What are Trustees?
Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact people in their community or society as a whole. Trustees use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims. Trustees also often learn new skills during their time on the board so being a trustee is a great way to learn.

Volunteering as a Trustee is a rewarding role but one that most volunteers don't tend to consider. However your experience could make a lasting impact on the charity, for example your social media skills could help a charity keep up in the digital age; or you may be able to bring a different viewpoint to represent a certain part of the community and ensure that all members of the community are heard.
