Charity trustees are some of the most important people in a charity.
The bottom line is, good governance led by a charityâ€™s board is no longer an optional extra. Itâ€™s essential to charitiesâ€™ effectiveness and probably their survival too. Charities need to be able to demonstrate that they take it seriously, allowing it to change the way they operate.
Charities need a wide range of skills from their trustees, to understand and address the many challenges charities can face. They need trustee boards that can challenge one another and the status quo, that bring different experiences, knowledge and ideas, but that are able to work consistently and enthusiastically as a team.
