Action Together is hosting the first Get on Board Tameside event, on Thursday 7 February, from 5 – 7pm, at Tapsters, 31 Old Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 6LA, to showcase trustee roles at local voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise organisations.

Get on Board Tameside will inform potential volunteers of the role of charity trustees, the benefits and how to find and apply for a position on a charity board. Attendees will have the chance to meet chief executives from local charities, network with other trustees and get support from Action Together team.

There are currently 8,400 committee/board members in Oldham and 8,000 committee/board members in Tameside but more are needed. Trusteeship is open to all ages, backgrounds and skills sets. It allows you to experience and gain new skills including developing skills in strategy, leadership and negotiation.
