It’s Trustees’ Week: 7-11 November
Trustees’ Week takes place every year. It aims to showcase the great work trustees do!
Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play a very important role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about a charity’s work.
We would like to thank all of our Grace Eyre trustees for sharing their time, talent and experience:
Liv Corbishley (Chair), Peter Begley (Treasurer), Samantha Boast, Peter Boorman, Anna Cooley-Greene, Camilla Gauge, Stuart Leaney, Simon Owen, Daniel Parsonage and Kirsty Pentecost.
Interested in becoming a trustee?
We are looking for trustees and a Deputy Chair with professional expertise in areas such as board governance, property project management and development, digital technology, charitable fundraising and/or lived experience of learning disabilities.
Grace Eyre Trustees are responsible for actively engaging in preparing for meetings where they will be discussing, debating and agreeing key decisions that affect the charity.
We welcome applicants from minority and ethnic communities who are underrepresented on the Board. We value diverse perspectives from the widest possible range of backgrounds.
Trustee training for people with a learning disability and/or autism
We have developed a trustee training programme for people with a learning disability and autistic people.
We did this because there were no accessible training courses available that were designed to support people with a learning disability and/or autism who wanted to become trustees.
Grace Eyre currently has 2 trustees with a learning disability who help to lead our organisation. We will continue to expand this number with courses like this.
We will be offering this training again from 2023.
If your organisation is looking for accessible training for people you support who want to become trustees, get in touch with Cleo Dibb, User Involvement Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07921 095 492.
