Details announced for Charity Trustees’ Week 2023

13 - 17 November

A host of free events are planned for Ireland’s 7th Charity Trustees Week from 13 – 17 November when organisations across the charity sector and the Charities Regulator come together for a great big THANK YOU to the over 76,000 volunteers responsible for overseeing the operations of Ireland’s 11,500 registered charities. These volunteers, known as charity trustees, include directors, board members and committee members of charities.

Working in partnership  Boardmatch IrelandCarmichaelCharities Institute Ireland, the Charities Regulator, Dóchas,  Pobal, Volunteer Ireland  and The Wheel have created a calendar of free events to suit trustees from every type of charity. Most events are on-line making them easy to attend no matter where a charity trustee is based.

As well as celebrating the work of charity trustees, the week’s events are designed to provide support and insights to help trustees fulfil their roles and responsibilities. The events are also open to members of the public who want to learn more about the important role of charity trustees in Ireland’s charities, and how they can get involved.

Helen Martin, Chief Executive, Charities Regulator commented: “Charity Trustees’ Week is a well-deserved thank you to charity trustees for the important work they carry out throughout the year in the governance and leadership of Ireland’s charities.  Their role is vital in assuring public trust and confidence in the charity sector, and as the regulator we see their commitment in action daily. I would also encourage people who might be curious or interested in becoming a charity trustee to check out the events on offer across the week and learn more about how they too can get involved by volunteering with Ireland’s charities.”
