The Young Trustees Movement is made up of current and aspiring young trustees, employers and allies. They exist to double the number of trustees aged 30 and under on charity boards by 2024.

The Movement came out of a research project led by The Social Change Agency and funded by The Blagrave Trust. The Young Trustees Movement was one of the first groups to be incubated by SCN, who provided them with fiscal hosting and capacity building support.

Funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Coop Foundation, Zing, The Blagrave Trust and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation (all funds managed through SCN) YTM were able to scale and spin-off in 2022.

“SCN supports you with all the admin and backend processes (and all the parts you don’t have experience in) so that you can put all of your energy into the vision of your work. SCN also supported YTM in building powerful networks. What’s particularly powerful is that they build you up and encourage you to be independent, instead of clinging on – that’s true social change.”
