Source: UKFundraising

What began as a nagging problem with charities’ ability to recruit trustees has steadily morphed into a full-blown crisis.

The most recent available figures – from November 2017 – showed there were 100,000 unfilled charity trustee vacancies.
By January this year, some 74% of charities were reporting difficulties hiring the trustees they needed.

Despite widespread media reports that public confidence in charities as a whole has plunged in the wake of the scandals at Kids Company, Oxfam and Save the Children, Britons’ willingness to fundraise – and donate – remains strong.
