Charity Trustee Induction and Training Session

Being a charity trustee can be an onerous position and not one which should be entered into lightly. Whether the charity is small or large the role of a trustee is a complicated and potentially risky one.


Taking responsibility for the running of a charity can be a challenging task and many potential trustees are deterred from volunteering because of the perceived risks and level of involvement required.

This trustee training session is the first of a series and will provide an essential toolkit to the law and procedure surrounding being a trustee and running a charity. Suitable for anyone considering being a trustee as well as new and experienced trustees, the training will be informal and interactive with the opportunity to ''compare notes'' and share experiences with other trustees and attendees.

Key points to be covered will include:

  • What it means to be a trustee
  • The risks of being a trustee and how to avoid liability
  • Charities as an employer and what it means to trustees
  • Governance and what trustees are expected to know
  • Duties and responsibilities of trustees
  • Financial responsibility of trustees
  • The benefits of being a trustee!

The training will be over a half day starting at 10.00am and finishing at 1.00pm followed by a light buffet lunch. This session is the first in a series of similar training sessions to build upon the expertise and knowledge of trustees and also to provide an induction for new trustees.
