Trustees are the people in charge of a charity, and hold ultimate responsibility for directing the business of the charity. They are often the unsung heroes, playing a vital role, volunteering their time, working together to make the decisions that really matter about the charity's finances, activities and plans for the future.
People often become trustees to 'give something back', but joining a Charity also enables them to develop new skills and meet new people that may open up new opportunities for them. All this whilst benefiting the charity with their skills and experience.
Trustees’ Week, organised by the Charity Commission, is now in its sixth year and aims to highlight the great work that trustees do, whilst also drawing attention to the opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved as a Trustee and make a real difference.
Here at Sebastian’s Action Trust, we have eight Trustees on our Board, all of whom provide their time and effort to support and guide us in our quest to provide the best support we can to the families of seriously-ill children.
This week we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate our team of trustees and thank them for all their hard work and dedication.
