Charity Training

Enthusiasm, plus expertise and experience - Charity Training from Stone King

We are pleased to announce our 2019 dates for The Essential Trustee and Governance in Practice training programme.

We have developed our training to equip charity Trustees and members of Senior Management Teams with the knowledge they need to carry out their roles effectively. Our Charity Essentials programme will offer a number of introductory sessions across various locations in the UK. These sessions are designed to provide a crucial overview for all charity Trustees and invaluable insight for Senior Management. Covering key Charity Commission guidance and the underlying charity law duties, the aim is to help you implement best practice, prevent and deal with problems when they arise and recognise when further input is needed.
The sessions are built around the Charity Commission’s core guidance, including “The Essential Trustee”, “It’s Your Decision” “Recognising and Managing Conflicts of Interest”, and the new Governance Codes of Practice endorsed by the Commission. You will improve your understanding of the context in which the Charity Commission and other regulators, such as the Fundraising Regulator and Information Commissioner, operate. The session considers case studies to examine best practice governance in practical settings. Topics include:

  • the evolving role of the Charity Commission and its interaction with other regulators
  • key duties and liabilities of charity trustees and recent regulatory case reports
  • your role as a charity trustee, working with others and managing disagreement

All sessions are interactive and provide the opportunity for you to put your questions to expert advisors.
