Through the National Governance Association, volunteers receive free expert support for 12 months. Inspiring Governance also works with employers wanting to run programmes for their staff serving as governors.

"Overall, the service has been exceptional – not just in the quality of the people we have been able to recruit and their readiness to commit to the role, but also in the training support offered to them all by the National Governance Association."
Cary Wicks, Chair of Governors, Carter Community School

Volunteers sign-up to become a governor or trustee, providing their location and listing the skills and experience they can offer to a board. Governors seeking new volunteers can view all the volunteers in their area or specify the skills they're looking for, connect with volunteers directly and begin the process of recruiting.

The service is fast and easy to use. Sign up today at:
