It is the time of year when we come together to mark the achievements of the UK’s one million trustees. This is an opportunity to use the wide range of guidance, resources and online training to develop your skills, make new connections with other trustees and share your achievements more widely.

  • offer you an online, ‘one-stop shop’ where you can find training, and a host of essential guidance and other resources
