The Charity Commission for England and Wales have published a ‘welcome pack’ that will be sent out to all new trustees, but is also a useful reminder to existing trustees.
The clear, accessible guidance is available on their website and reminds new (and existing) trustees to:
- get to know your charity
- put the charity's interests first
- attend meetings and make decisions
- get to know your duties
- understand what you have to send to the Commission; how they can help and what to do if things go wrong
