Trustees have overall control of the charity and are responsible for making sure it does what it was set up to do. Our trustees don’t get paid for their role – they act out of a desire to help people and make positive change. Volunteering as a trustee is a rewarding and enjoyable role. It can be challenging at times too.
Their responsibilities include ensuring the charity:
- Has the money it needs.
- Spends its money sensibly, on the activities it was raised for.
- Follows the law, including preparing reports and accounts to send to the Charity Commission.
- Doesn’t break the rules in its governing document (its constitution, trust deed or articles).
- Plans what the charity will do and what it can achieve.
- Can explain the charities activities and how they are intended to support its purposes.
