UK Trustee Board diversity

Charities are recognising the importance of diversity in their trustee boards but figures from the NCVO Almanac show there is still work to be done.

71% of trustees are over 45 despite the fact that a significant portion of charity beneficiaries are children and young people.

4.8% of charity trustees are from ethnic minority groups compared with 7.8% of the population.
