To mark Trustees Week – a fantastic annual event showcasing the great work that Trustees do – we thought it would be a good opportunity to bring back to the limelight all of those Trustees we have celebrated over the last year.
Welcome to February’s Pick of the Month – this Valentine’s day, we hope our round up of charity sector heroes will make you remember why you love charities and social enterprises.
You’ll notice that our Trustee for February is slightly different this month, after the Cause4 team attended a fantastic Young Trustees Movement event in the first week of February. We were so delighted to have many exciting conversations about diversifying charity boards!
Happy New Year! For some ultimate ‘new year, new you’ inspiration, check out our round up of the charity sector for January. This month we have sector leaders using hip-hop to combat loneliness, writing to build confidence, and business skills to support governance.
Social Entrepreneur of the Month – Charlie Blair, the Blair Academy
Recent articles published by Sky News and the Times cast a negative light on the UK’s military charities, claiming that the largest in the sector were hoarding money whilst failing to support vulnerable veterans.
Remember, remember, it’s Pick of the Month for November! We’re so excited about this month’s round up of changemakers in the charity sector. The work that these leaders are doing is making a huge difference in many areas: from the arts, to refugees, to homelessness.
