This session will help you to discharge your duties as a Trustee, be more aware of your liabilities and show you how to deal with conflicts of interest. It includes information from the Charity Governance Code and The Essential Trustee Guidance. Course fees: from £35 per person


In December 2016, the Charity Commission once again emphasised that there is the need for trustees to get a real grip on their duties and do the basics better.’ The Commission is very concerned that trustees do not understand their role and the updated guide for trustees (The Essential Trustee) gives a clear message of what is now expected from you.
