GETTING ON BOARD

Getting on Board is a national charity (number 1112013) which supports individuals to join charity boards, and supports charities to recruit trustees effectively. We work with hundreds of potential trustees, charities and employers including Accenture, Prudential and Comic Relief.

There are an estimated 100,000 vacancies for charity trustees in the UK and three quarters of charities say that they struggle to recruit board members. Without effective trustees, charities cannot thrive.
