As with many charities, Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland‘s success relies on the support of local people including those who volunteer as trustees.

Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to support and steer the direction of our charity.

We are celebrating Trustees’ Week (2 – 6 November) by thanking all members of our board for the vital contribution they each make to the success of our charity.

Trustees’ Week is annual event to showcase the great work trustees do for charities up and down the UK.

There are just over 1 million trustees in the UK and here at Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland, we’re lucky to have a supportive and dedicated board who bring a variety of skills and experience to help steer our work and develop our charity.

Our trustees meet as a board a number of times a year. They each play a vital leadership role in our charity, working together to make important decisions and taking strategic responsibility for our work supporting people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.
