What is a trustee?

logo-trustees_week_landscape_cmyk.jpgThere are approximately 196,000 charities in the UK and just over 1 million trustees. Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They help to make the UK the sixth most giving country in the world.

They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about their charity’s work.

This week is Trustees’ Week (2-6 November), an annual event which showcases the great work trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

At MS-UK our dedicated Board of Trustees works closely with the MS-UK management team to develop and ensure the effective implementation of our Strategic Plan. All of our trustees come from different backgrounds and bring with them their career and life experience to help grow and progress the charity. You can find out more about our trustees here.
