Charity trustee training - Autumn series

17 Sep 2019 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 12 Nov 2019

Charity trustees have a responsibility to run their charity in line with legal requirements and best practice and so need to understand what is expected of them and how best they may fulfil their duties. 

Just as organisations grow and develop, so too should the board of trustees.  This series of training is designed specifically for charity trustees and those staff which support the work of the board. 

We know that Trustees have a vital role to play in organisations and it is important that they are informed, supported and equipped to govern organisations well and ensure they fulfil their mission. This training series covers a wide range of relevant topics that will be of interest to trustees from all types and sizes of organisation. Some sessions are free and some have a small charge, NICVA Members always benefit from a 30% discount. We also offer bespoke training to your board at a time and place to suit you.

“I now have a much clearer idea on my role & responsibilities as a trustee”
