The Walking in Partnership Series

This video focuses on the role of the trustee and governance, including discussion of lay trustees, mission partners and key aspects of governance.

This discussion focuses on finance and related concerns, including key issues around charity property, investments and the care needs of ageing members.


This video reflects back on themes raised in our prior collaborations and how these have evolved, as well as a look ahead at innovation and change and how Religious Order charities can plan for a successful future.

The video series is the third part in a trilogy of content co-published by Buzzacott and Stone King to support the work of religious orders over recent years. The first collaboration was entitled Embracing Change, a handbook prepared for Roman Catholic religious orders to mark 2015 as the Year of Consecrated Life. The second, entitled Consecrated Life: a Trustee’s Journey, provided a governance handbook for trustees of religious order congregational charities.

Should you wish to discuss any of the topics raised in these videos please contact either Tim Rutherford at Stone King or Amanda Francis at Buzzacott.
