A Trustee Guide - Introduction to the Role of the Trustee, Governance & the Charities Governance Code (Online Workshop)

This workshop is ideal for anyone new to being a trustee, considering joining a board or would just like to revisit the basics of good trusteeship.

In this workshop we will discuss the foundations of good governance, the importance of instilling strong governance in your organisation, and the role the board/trustee plays in ensuring best governance practices.

Covering the principles of the code, this in-depth workshop is essential for anyone looking to be introduced to regulation for charities, and the role the trustee plays in the journey toward compliance.
