Charity News: Trustee guidance

CCEW has published a series of simple, easy to understand ‘5-minute’ guides designed to help trustees understand their responsibilities for the management of the charities they are involved with.

Five guides have been published, which cover the basic requirements of:

  • Financial oversight
  • Achieving a charity’s purposes
  • Good decision making
  • Addressing conflicts of interest
  • What to file with CCEW and what support is available.

This ‘core syllabus’ covers the fundamental issues that CCEW expects all trustees to be aware of, and provides links to the more detailed guidance that is available. It is hoped that by publishing these guides trustees will find it easier to access the information they need, especially those that may be inexperienced and unfamiliar with their obligations.
