Trustees’ Week is fast approaching, and The Clare Foundation is delighted to share details of Getting On Board’s national Festival of Trusteeship and a special money off discount across all their events, for friends of The Clare Foundation.
Trustees’ Week is an annual focus week – a time for us to come together to celebrate the achievements of over 1 million trustees across the UK. The Clare Foundation works with hundreds of committed trustees in Bucks every year – giving them free access to our programme of education, training and networking events and our pro bono support programmes. We are fortunate to have a strong voluntary and community sector in Bucks, and thousands of charity trustees, each volunteering time and energy, and playing a huge part in the delivery of charitable services across the county and beyond.
Trustees’ Week Theme
The theme of Trustees’ Week this year is making a difference in changing times. On the backdrop of Covid, economic uncertainty and the ongoing war in Ukraine, our external environment continues to change, and we face new challenges. The positive impact you make as a trustee is invaluable to a sector that is now as important as ever to benefit society. Thank you for the time, commitment and effort you bring to your charities to help them thrive.
During the week we encourage you to attend online or in-person events, connect with other trustees and share your experiences. You can develop your skills or encourage others who are new to the trustee role, by accessing events and training.
Our friends at Community Impact Bucks are hosting an event for Bucks based trustees on 8th November 2022 (6-7pm). The Trustee Roundtable will provide a forum for trustees/management committee members to ask, discuss and find solutions to common questions faced by many not-for-profit organisations.

Getting on Board’s Offer
As mentioned, our colleagues at national charity, Getting On Board, would like to offer all friends of the Clare Foundation discounted entry to all their events during Trustees’ Week. Their CEO, Penny Wilson writes…
Getting on Board’s Festival of Trusteeship will take place during Trustees’ Week, 7-11 November 2022. It’s a week-long online series of events, during Trustees’ Week, stuffed with exciting options for people who want to become trustees, trustees who want to keep learning and developing, and for charity leaders who want to understand best practice in trustee recruitment and diversity. Four different content strands will cover all aspects of trusteeship: Aspiring Trustees, Trustee Recruitment, Good Governance and Thought Leadership delivered in a mix of interactive webinars, clinics and panel discussions about the topics that matter to trusteeship.
A free interactive webinar on the future of trusteeship with the Charity Commission’s Chair, Orlando Fraser; an interactive webinar: Is my board mediocre? and a juicy panel discussion: Smashing the cut glass ceiling – is being working class a barrier to trusteeship?
Our members can get 50% off booking here using the code: LOCAL50
Getting on Board is able to keep prices accessible because of the kind support of Ecclesiastical. Without the code, sessions are £5, or a weekly pass is £25.
This is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen your governance knowledge as well as network with other trustees and charity folk.
