Charity Trustees Week runs from 14 – 18 November

A bumper calendar of events is planned for Ireland’s sixth Charity Trustees’ Week from 14-18November.

Organisations across the charity sector and the Charities Regulator are coming together for a ‘thank-you’ to trustees across Ireland for their important work in the governance and leadership of Ireland’s charities.

The annual event celebrates the contribution of more than 76,000 volunteers across the country who oversee the operations of Ireland’s 11,500 registered charities.

This includes directors, board, and committee members.

This year’s programme includes some in-person events, as well as a range of remote and hybrid occasions.


As well as celebrating the work of charity trustees, the week’s events are designed to provide support and insights to help trustees fulfil their roles and responsibilities, while also creating greater awareness and understanding among the public of the important role of charity trustees.

Charities Regulator chief executive Helen Martin said: “Charity Trustees’ Week is a well-deserved thank you to charity trustees for the important work they carry out throughout the year in the governance and leadership of Ireland’s charities. Their role is vital in assuring public trust and confidence, the bedrock of the charity sector and, as the regulator, we see their commitment in action daily.”
