What is Trustees’ Week and what does it mean to CPSL Mind?

Everything you need to know about CPSL Mind’s Board of Trustees and what we’re doing to celebrate Trustees’ Week. 

Simply put, trustees are volunteers who lead and make decisions on behalf of charities. Our board of trustees not only collectively make decisions that impacts the positive mental health in the local community across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire, but they also bring a wealth of experience and skills that contribute towards our goals. That’s why for Trustees’ Week, we’re putting a spotlight on what Trustees’ Week is and what our board of trustees support means to us.

What is Trustees’ Week?

According to, ‘Trustees’ Week is a time for us to come together to celebrate the achievements of nearly one million trustees across the UK. Thank you for the time, commitment and effort you bring to your charities to help them thrive.’

Each and every day, we want to thank our board for everything they do to help us meet our vision: a society in which everyone has positive mental health and feels part of a connected community.

When is Trustees’ Week?

The official celebration this year lands on the 6 to 10 November and the 2023 theme is: Many voices. Working together. With purpose. If you’d like to stay in the loop with our Trustees’ Week or charity information, make sure to subscribe to our newsletter or follow social channels like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and X to keep up to date with the latest news.

How are we celebrating Trustees’ Week at CPSL Mind?

Here at CPSL Mind, we have recognised our Trustees by interviewing two of our newest Trustees – Dan Allum and Katarzyna Smith. In these interviews we reveal why they became a Trustee a CPSL Mind, what they do as a Trustee and what their aims are. Plus, it’s an opportunity for staff, partners, anyone who uses our services, and the general public to get to know these incredible people.
