Being a trustee is rewarding but hard work, and the obligations have become increasingly onerous.
Trustees are special volunteers of the charity. They are in a unique position: they take regulatory responsibility for the activities of the charity, but are generally not engaged in its day to day operational activities.
If you are a trustee we can help you understand your role and responsibilities and the extent of your powers under the charity’s governing document and under charity law.
We can also advise governing boards and management teams on their duties and the correct procedures for appointing trustees.
We assist charities with:
- trustee training
- management of conflicts of interests
- directors’ duties
- director liability
- trustee liability
For more information on trustees duties and to start a conversation on how we can help you please contact Debbie Venn, Partner and Head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications .
