Trustees take on a significant amount of personal responsibility when acting for a charity, even though their role is voluntary. It is therefore essential that they have a thorough understanding of the role and the appropriate professional support to enable them to fulfil their obligations to the best of their abilities.

We regularly provide bespoke training courses for Boards of Trustees which can be particularly useful for newly appointed trustees, who perhaps do not have a background in finance or a detailed knowledge of the regulatory environment in which charities operate. Our focus is to explain complex legislation and accounting standards in straightforward language which can be understood by the non-expert.

Our training courses include:

  • Updates on charity law and regulation
  • Updates on Charity Commission guidance
  • A summary of trustee responsibilities under charity law
  • An introduction to understanding financial statements
  • Good practice in charity governance and risk management

From time to time, we also hold larger conferences, on key topical areas, to which we invite a wide range of clients, providing opportunities to network and discuss key issues.
