A residual legacy is what remains after specific bequests to family and friends.

The greatest contribution that you can make to the Salespeople’s Charity is to act as a Trustee.
We actively encourage those with field sales experience to join the Salespeople’s Charity but are also keen to hear from others with differing skill sets and experience. Eg, Marketing, Financial, IT, Social Welfare, etc
Trustees are requested to visit new applicants and existing beneficiaries within their immediate geographical area to assess how we might best support them.
Their subsequent report and proposal is then circulated to the Board of Trustees for consideration and once approved, the support is actioned.
Prospective Trustees meet with the Charity Manager who provides an insight into how the Charity conducts its operations before being invited to attend a Board Meeting, of which there are 3 per annum.
If an invitation to join the Board is issued and accepted by the prospective Trustee, he or she will be elected onto the Board for a period of five years, after which time, the Trustee is required to stand down, but can immediately stand for re-election without nomination.
An existing Board member mentors all new Trustees and a full induction is provided with training offered as required.
If you would like to enquire about becoming a Trustee of the Salespeople’s Charity, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We would advise anyone who is interested in becoming a Trustee to view the Charity Commission’s website, where the role and responsibilities of a Charity Trustee are explained in detail.
