Charity trustees, committee members, management committee – whatever your organisation calls its governing group, we are here to support its members.

Trustees are the backbone of charities – they are the people who share ultimate responsibility for governing and directing how it is managed and run. If you are a charity trustee, VODA can support you in a number of ways – by offering free advice and support, training, information and resources. We can also help you to advertise trustee vacancies, develop trustee roles and ensure you have all of the necessary policies and procedures in place to support you.
