Board Bank

What is Board Bank?

We support our staff, students and alumni to become charity trustees through our Board Bank programme. It is one of the ways that we work with local partners to make positive change in the boroughs we call home.

Volunteering as a trustee on a charity board is a great way to support a cause you are passionate about, while gaining leadership experience, cross-sector skills and exposure to new environments that can help enhance your own career and wellbeing.

I have never sat on a board and it is a great opportunity to learn more about finance, governance and build on existing skills like communication and teamwork. More than anything, I want to open the door for other people with my experiences to join a charity and make a real difference to people’s lives.
