Cardiff and Vale Trustees' Network
Cardiff and Vale Trustees' Network has been created to support individuals who are members of the Board of a third sector organisation. Its aim is to give trustees the knowledge and skills to be able to carry out their role effectively.
This purpose of the network is to:
- Disseminate and discuss relevant guidance for charities and other third sector organisations regarding relevant issues such as good governance;
- Share effective practice in running organisations from the perspective of a trustee board;
- Identify training needs for trustees so that individual knowledge and skills in delivering the role can be enhanced;
- Create a forum for trustees to discuss issues that are key in running their organisation effectively;
- Facilitate networking across trustees of third sector organisations in order to build collaborative working where appropriate.
Developed in partnership with Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS), the Cardiff and Vale Trustees' Network will meet four times a year and will be hosted alternatively in venues across Cardiff and the Vale.
Membership of the Network is free and open to individuals who are trustees of third sector organisations in either Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan. This can include national or regional third sector organisations' local projects or offices if they are based in either Cardiff or the Vale.
