Support for trustees

Support for trustees

Brighton Housing Trust combats homelessness, creates opportunities and promotes change. They exist to both challenge the causes of homelessness, poverty and marginalisation, and to deal with its consequences.

They’re a large organisation which employs over 250 staff. They’re steered by a board of nine trustees.

Brighton Housing Trust’s trustees have attended our governance network since the network was launched. They’ve participated in sessions on finance, managing change, raising funds through individual donations, and managing board meetings effectively.

As well as benefiting themselves, they’ve brought an invaluable large-organisation perspective and insight to the network, and they’ve shared their experience and expertise with other trustees and committee members attending the network meetings.

 

Need help?

Our governance network is an opportunity to meet other trustees and committee members, to learn together and share information about topics related to good governance. It meets four times a year.

“The governance network works for me in a number of ways. Firstly, it gives me access to good practice provided by speakers who are authorities on the topic and have robust, practical experience. Secondly, it gives me access to a network of peers from large and small organisations operating in a range of areas and with a range of perspectives. Thirdly, it is a trustworthy space where it is possible to voice issues and concerns confidentially. For me the network is an essential part of my continuing professional development.”
