Make sure you research an organisation and what will be expected of you before committing to the role. Responsibilities of trustees can be demanding but the payback can be immense in terms of networking, skills development and feel good factor.

Tameside charities and community organisations are in need of people from different backgrounds to inject some energy and fresh ideas into their boards. In most cases trustees must be 18 or over but some can be as young as 16 years old.
