New Guidance and Support for Trustees

It’s a tough time for charities right now. In these uncertain times, it’s never been more important to help trustees run their charities with confidence.

Research shows that many trustees could benefit from refreshing their knowledge. But trustees are often busy volunteers with little time to spend training or brushing up on their role and responsibilities. That’s why we’re supporting the Charity Commission to encourage trustees to take their trustee quiz and read their ‘five-minute guides’.

Whether you’re a new or more experienced trustee, no matter how big or small your charity, the Charity Commission have a range of guidance and support available to help.

You may already be familiar with the guides. They explain the basics trustees need in an easy-to-read format. They cover:

• Managing finances

• Staying focussed on your charity’s purpose

• Making good decisions

• Managing conflicts of interest

• Safeguarding your beneficiaries and your staff

• What information the Charity Commission needs from trustees and how the Charity Commission can help them.

If you'd like to find further training, support and events specifically for trustees, or prospective trustees, Getting on Board are pleased to be hosting the Festival of Trusteeship to mark Trustee Week, 6 - 10th November. Find out more here.
