Charity Trustees’ Week 2021 | 15 – 19 November 2021

Details have been announced for Charity Trustees’ Week 2021 which will take place from Monday, 15 November – Friday, 19 November with a week of great events, mainly online.

Charity Trustees’ Week 2021 is a great big THANK YOU to charity trustees across Ireland for the important and tireless work they carry out throughout the year. Charity Trustees’ Week is hosted in partnership by the Charities Regulator, Boardmatch Ireland, Carmichael, The Wheel, Volunteer Ireland, Charities Institute Ireland, Pobal and Dóchas.

The majority of this year’s events are online which means you can once again take part from the comfort of your home or office. They have created a timetable of diverse events to suit trustees from every type of charity so you can pick and choose from over 25 events.

The aim of Charity Trustees’ Week is to:

  • Celebrate and thank charity trustees for the key role which they play in the governance and leadership of Ireland’s charities;
  • Highlight the importance of good governance of boards, promote the need for a thorough knowledge of trustees roles and responsibilities, education and upskilling of trustees;
  • Highlight the need for new trustees to come forward and highlight the means by which new trustees can be connected with charities that need trustees;
  • Create a greater understanding and awareness among the public of the role of trustees, and the awareness that trustees are public members;
