As we continue to navigate a challenging and changing environment, the role of a trustee remains essential as ever. Providing strategic oversight and often bringing a broader perspective and skillset to support the team in achieving its aims. History tells us that demands on the sector are likely to increase as the rises in living costs and continued uncertainty impact beneficiaries and organisations. Workplace culture, employee wellbeing, recruitment and retention remain key areas of focus in a difficult and competitive marketplace.
Trustees must ensure they are up to date with the latest guidance in order to meet the responsibilities of this rewarding and vital role. Our Trustee Essentials course highlights the key responsibilities of a charity Trustee, the important current issues for charities and what Trustees need to be focusing on now and in the future.
Delivered by specialists in our Non Profit team, the course will retain the unique opportunity for Trustees to engage with one-another and work collaboratively. Once again, the course has been divided up and will take place across four consecutive Friday afternoons. The four sessions will focus on:
Friday 12 May - 14:00 - 15:30
Trustee responsibilities and the board of the future.
Friday 26 May - 14:00 - 15:30
Risk management as a strategic enabler for charities.
Friday 19 May - 14:00 - 15:30
Charity accounts, effective reporting and managing reserves
Friday 2 June - 14:00 - 15:30

“I am going to take on my first trustee role and so this has been really useful to understand the responsibilities of trustees and the issues we need to grapple with, and also to consider how I might ensure I am adding value at the right level as I step into a trustee role”
