The Trustee role gives back just as much as you put in, so it is important you are passionate about the charity and its objectives, otherwise you will likely under-invest in the role and ultimately provide a disservice to the most important people.

You cannot force people to volunteer. They have to decide by themselves if they would like to improve the lives of other people by giving their time and expertise.

Being a Trustee is extremely rewarding but it is a big commitment. It’s much more than just turning up at a Board meeting once a quarter.
