Board member, committee member, trustee – whatever word your group uses, make sure you understand your legal responsibilities.

Most charities and community groups are run by a board or a management committee, which has responsibility for setting strategy, upholding the organisation’s values and making sure it delivers its goals.

What you’ll learn
  • Why it’s important to have a management committee
  • The roles and responsibilities of trustees and honorary officers, and the terminology used
  • How to divide responsibilities between committee members, staff and other volunteers
  • How to assess what training your committee members need

"Better understanding of ‘roles’ through the shared group involvement. Clear and informative.
