New Charity Commission user-friendly guides for trustees
The Commission has published a range of user-friendly guides for trustees. Launched in Trustees’ Week 2020, the five x 5-minute guides cover a ‘core syllabus’ of basic information that should help trustees run their charities effectively. Each of the guides 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 the Commission
Good governance underpins the delivery of your charity’s purposes to the high standards expected by the public; the Commission’s CEO, Helen Stephenson, has been speaking about the crucial role trustees are playing and how the Commission is helping trustees to navigate the rules with their new quick and easy guides.
The guides can be accessed here.
