Trustees and governance

Trustees form the backbone of the not-for-profit sector, and clarity about their role is essential

The Charity Commission is very clear about the role of Trustees, and have produced a number of clear and comprehensive guides to becoming a trustee and things that trustees and staff need to know

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) also sells a guide to good trusteeship

Top tip

Assess what skills and knowledge your organisation needs, and recruit trustees to fill those gaps, rather than just because they are willing.
