Focusing on impact: What do trustees need to know?

Trustees have a vital role to play in ensuring their charity remains focused on achieving its goals and making an impact.

But with the numerous responsibilities trustees have—understanding finances, thinking about legal compliance, ensuring accountability—embedding a culture of impact practice within their charity can slip down the list of priorities.

This briefing paper summarises an event held by NPC with the Clothworkers’ Company, where speakers and attendees discussed how trustees can begin their impact journey.

It looks at the barriers trustees face, and provides advice, case studies, and resources for getting started.
