Young Trustees Movement
Less than 3% of charity trustees are under 30. We're changing that.
The Young Trustees Movement is made up of current and aspiring young trustees, employers and allies. We exist to double the number of trustees aged 30 and under on charity boards by 2024.
Great work is already being done. Lots of organisations have young trustees on their boards already. Here are just a few amazing charities that are part of the movement.
A network of speakers who share their insights and tips at panel events, podcasts, blogs and more.

When 1/12 trustees are named either John or David and fewer than 3% of trustees are under 30. It’s no secret that board diversity is an issue. Join us in changing that. The first step is attending this workshop.
By the end of our 1 hour workshop you will:
Be able to articulate and understand how young trustees can enable organisations to navigate uncertainty, future proof decisions and reflect the interest of their communities .
Have a framework to understand how to approach diversity on boards.
Be able to run a session with a board to plan practical and achievable next steps.
Optional extra hour:
There will also be an additional hour after the session where you will have access to a non-judgemental space, where you can talk through challenges, concerns and any other barriers to meaningfully recruiting and inducting young trustees.

Trustee, England – North West

If theatres were being imagined today, we probably wouldn’t build them in the way we have come to expect. Segregating the social space and performance space, so that everyone must sit quietly, in the dark, on uncomfortable seats in a warm auditorium feels increasingly dated, abelist and classist. Having to pay more to be able to get a better view, dressing up for the occasion and only being allowed to go to the loo at certain times are nothing more than castoff rules from a Victorian age.
By starting from the ground up, The PurpleDoor proposes a radical alternative, which brings theatre back to its roots in community engagement and civic pride. Our culture will be free at the point of access, with a forward facing bar and a focus on supporting working-class audiences and artists.
We're currently recruiting for Trustees with a Finance/Accounting background, Human Resources and Legal background in relation to charity fundraising. We would love to speak to potential Trustees from the black, Asian and minority ethnic community colleagues as we are currently under-represented on the Board.

Link Age Southwark is seeking two new Trustees who can bring specific skills and knowledge, as well as increased representation of Southwark’s diverse communities to our Board. We are keen to increase representation of the diverse communities that Southwark represents on the Board of Link Age Southwark. This includes people who may not have served on a Board before as we can provide mentorship and training to new or inexperienced Trustees.
