Today marks the beginning of Trustees' Week and we're encouraging VCSE sector groups & organisations across the county to join us to celebrate the difference trustees make within Gloucestershire. We have a range of free events running throughout the week and will be sharing links to online resources, stories from the sector and more on our social media accounts.

If you can't attend one of our events, here's some ideas about how you can get involved online:

  1. Thank your trustees on social media
  2. Share a case study or story about one (or all) of your trustees on your website and social media
  3. Post your trustee bio's on social media to introduce them to your followers
  4. Promote your trustee vacancies on Go Volunteer Glos, your website and social media
  5. Use the #TrusteesWeek hashtag on social media to extend the reach of your posts
