Recruiting, developing and supporting Committee/Board members

  In the aftermath of the Birmingham riots of 2011 Miles Weaver led a group of defiant citizens with brooms in the clean-up operation and an idea was born. Get young people off the streets, train them and place them on boards of local charities. A wild idea! But, it worked and a young trustees project came into being. Now a lecturer in Napier’s Business School, Miles has brought the idea to Scotland and already many young people have been trained as trustees.
