Getting the most from Trustees

Finding the right people to take on the role of a Trustee in your charity is crucial but once the Trustee is in place they need to be kept involved and interested to provide the financial and strategic input to make your charity thrive.  This session will cover how to get the most from your Trustees.

Code of Governance

Good governance is about how trustees carry out their charitable objects and comply with those legal duties having regard to the proper use of their powers. In a sense, governance is a sub-set of the legal rules and a one size fits all approach will not do. Good governance requires careful thought. So why bother with governance? There are at least two good reasons. Reputation and financial, both of which are interchangeable. This session will look at the legal rules and good governance using the published reports of inquiries conducted by the Charity Commission into charities by way of illustration.
