Press Release (9) - Trustees Week 2018
Trustees Week celebrating Trustees across Denbighshire
As part of Trustees Week 2018 which runs from 12th – 16th November, DVSC will be holding a series of events on the theme of creating a safe organisational culture.
As the membership body for volunteers, voluntary and community groups, third sector organisations and social enterprises in Denbighshire, DVSC is taking part in UK wide celebrations for Trustees Week which will involve a number of exciting trustee events from 12th – 16th November 2018.
Creating a safe organisational culture is crucial to the smooth running of any third sector organisation, but in a fast-changing environment which places increasing pressures on organisations, trustees need accessible guidance to support them in ensuring & maintaining high standards in this area.
Helen Wilkinson, DVSC’s Chief Executive, says: “Trustees' Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
It is also a great opportunity to say thank you to trustees. We encourage all of our members to give a shout out to their trustees who give their time voluntarily and make an enormous contribution to the third sector in Denbighshire.
We would like to do a shout out to thank Beth Taylor, Liz Ward Hughes, Les Starling and Pam Boyd, DVSC trustees for their contribution this year.”
