The Charity Commission is very concerned that generally trustees do not understand their role and the updated guide for trustees (The Essential Trustee) gives a clear message of what is now expected from you. This session will help you to discharge your duties, be more aware of your liabilities and show you how to deal with conflicts of interest.
