Spend an invigorating half-day getting up to date with the roles and responsibilities of those in governance/trustee positions.

Community Southwark workshops are ideal for those new to trusteeship or simply looking for a refresher. Using games, exercises, peer learning and lectures, we provide the key information and space to think about the key governance issues affecting your organisation.
