Trusteeship and governance
What makes a good trustee? How do I find good trustees? What training should trustees have? How should we include beneficiaries as trustees?
We believe the quality of trustees can make or break a charity or funder. Being a good trustee is not just about finance and risk, but grasping opportunities and maximising social impact. Our guide on What good governance looks like draws on our knowledge of working with charities and funders. We use these insights to explore how trustees can lead their organisations to do the best for their beneficiaries.
Through our resources, training and consulting, we help trustees to:
- Stay focussed on the purpose of governance
- Get the most from fellow trustees
- Adopt best practices and processes
Each year we help run the Charity Governance Awards, celebrating inspirational good practice in the sector.
We’re continually learning and sharing best practice, discussing new ideas and policies to improve governance across the charity sector. Stay on top of the conversation by coming to one of our trustee seminars. Get in touch for more on how we can help you.
We are very grateful to the Clothworkers’ Company for supporting our seminars on improving trusteeship across the charity sector.
