The roles and responsibilities of Trustees

Michele Price: The roles and responsibilities of Trustees

Join Michele for a session on the roles and responsibilities of Trustees, useful for both Trustees and the staff members who work with them.

  • The history of trusteeship and why the concepts of loyalty and being a fiduciary are still relevant. 
  • The role of charity trustees, with a focus on acting as a board and how to manage delegation and risk. 
  • Specific responsibilities: property, finance and accounting; investments; fundraising; safeguarding and serious incidents. 
  • What does it mean to have ultimate responsibility of a charity and how to know if you are doing enough to discharge your responsibilities?   
  • Help! What to do when things go wrong.
