Charity trustee training series

14 Jan 2019 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 27 Mar 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. Click on the title of the training below to find out more and to book onto a particular training session.
