Train Your Trustees

A recent survey conducted by the Charities Commission has found that newly registered charities may not be preparing their trustees for the duties and responsibilities they will face.

Based on the research findings, 40% of newly registered charities have not yet offered training and support to their new trustees.

Sam Young chief executive of the Charity Commission said:

‘The survey findings highlight the importance of our guidance to trustees in helping new charities get off to a good start.  While there is plenty of evidence of forward thinking, we would like to see these new charities recruiting more widely and offering new trustees more training and support.  When starting out as a charity, it is essential to have strong governance arrangements in place.  These are the foundations upon which successful charities are built.’
