What our clients have said about being a trustee

We've worked with hundreds of people over the years. Here's a tiny selection of feedback

What our Trustees say

  • It's Enabled me to make a positive difference locally
  • Grown my network
  • Made me feel proud!


" Being a Trustee gives me an insight on the decision making and the running of an organisation at Board level.  "


"It has enabled me to understand the full workings of a board, the various committees and sub-committees and the range of skills required and input needed to run an organisation. "


" I had the opportunity to meet with Ronan and Sally at Be A Trustee, and to explore the sorts of areas where I may be able to give back to  local and wider communities, and to attain some new skills.  I  have found the experience thus far to be one of the best things that  I’ve done – I am proud to say that I am genuinely adding value to a  charity that does such wonderful work supporting people on their pathway to recovery, but I am  also developing and embracing new skills and a wider growth-mind set.Becoming  a charity Trustee has benefited me by giving me new skills and  experiences that have aided my career progression, and also personal  development."
