Young Ealing Foundation on the lookout for trustees in their local area

With as little as a few hours a month, you could bring vital expertise to local causes as a charity trustee.

That is the message that the Young Ealing Foundation are looking to share this Giving Tuesday by connecting individuals with organisations that help young people.

The foundation will be hosting a free-to-attend trustee fair at the Gunnersbury Park & Museum’s Rothschild Rooms on December 3rd to showcase the range of opportunities available across different local areas.  

The organisation says that fundraising, HR, governance, risk management, marketing, communications, public affairs, business development and organisation management are just a few of the skills that are needed.

Tanya Taylor, marketing and communications officer at the Young Ealing Foundation, told us: “We are delighted to be hosting this event.

“Aside from being able to make an impact on your local community, being a trustee is a fantastic opportunity to develop skills around business management.”

She added:

“We really want to showcase that being a trustee doesn’t have to be a scary thing – and it can be quite varied. It is a role that can be widely rewarding and give people a rich experience in management and strategy building.”
