Our introduction session is essential for all charity trustees – new and experienced trustees alike – covering key Charity Commission guidance and the underlying charity law duties. The aim is to help trustees implement best practice, prevent and deal with problems when they arise and recognise when further input is needed.
The session is 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.
