Making a difference in challenging times

We're a small charity making a big difference in Derbyshire.

Trustees’ Week is a time for us to come together to celebrate the achievements of nearly 1 million trustees across the UK.

This year the theme is making a difference in changing times. As our external environment continues to change, we face new challenges. The positive impact you make as a trustee is invaluable to a sector that is now as important as ever to benefit society. Thank you for the time, commitment and effort you bring to your charities to help them thrive.

Making a difference in changing times.

Throughout the week you’ll have the chance to connect with other trustees to share your experiences. You’ll also be able to develop your skills through our wide range of events, training and guidance.

Simon Taylor Chair of Trustees   

"The fact that being a trustee of Rural Action Derbyshire (RAD) is a voluntary role does not mean that it is easy or with little responsibility. Quite the opposite, in fact. RAD’s trustees have ultimate legal responsibility for the charity, ensuring that the organisation works within the legal rules and best practice guidance of both Company Law and the Charity Commission."
