The Charity Commission has published a range of user-friendly guides for trustees. Launched in Trustees’ Week 2020, the five 5-minute guides cover a ‘core syllabus’ of basic information that will help trustees run their charities effectively. Available in English and Welsh, they explain the fundamentals of:
- controlling your charity’s finances
- keeping ‘on mission’ and within the rules
- decision making
- spotting conflicts of interest and dealing with them
- sending information to the Commission, as well as what support you can get from us
Good governance underpins the delivery of your charity’s purposes to the high standards expected by the public. Read more in a blog from the Charity Commission CEO, Helen Stephenson, about the crucial role trustees are playing and how we are helping them navigate the rules: This #Trustees Week ‘take 5’ to read our new quick and easy guides.
