Trustee Workshop

A half day workshop aimed at experienced trustees who would like to refresh their skills and knowledge, and anyone who is considering getting involved in charity governance, and wants to better understand the role and the responsibilities of a charity trustee.

It will cover some strategies for working well together and being effective as a Board of Trustees, and introduce the Charity Code of Governance. The session will also help you to understand the importance of your governing document and charitable objects, as well as identifying the next steps for development for you as a trustee and for your Board.

It’s being held on Tuesday 26th November in Glastonbury. Tickets are £35.

Great attendance at Trustees’ Week Event

Thirty four trustees and prospective trustees met last Tuesday during National Trustee Week at Victoria Park Community Centre to celebrate the contribution made by many thousands of trustees in Somerset.

Two brief training sessions covered a refresher on the duties and responsibilities of being a trustee as well as introducing the new Code of Governance for Charities.

Feedback from the session has been very positive, and The Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum and partner organisations will now be considering how to respond to the request for more networking and training opportunities for Somerset trustees in 2018.
