Helpful information for trustees
- Friday, 01 June 2012
I've you're a trustee, we'd encourage you to take a look at these useful guides from WCVA.
Charities and voluntary organisations have the power to transform the lives of people and communities for the better.
They exist in various shapes and sizes, but whatever the cause or the scale of the project they are all run by people who carry a great deal of responsibility. Not only do those trustees and board members have a responsibility to manage their organisations effectively so that objectives can be achieved, they also have a responsibility to act in a way that promotes and facilitates increased public trust.
Good practice in governance has never been more important than it is now, as difficult financial times and continued changes within the voluntary sector mean that it is vital for trustees and board members to embrace the values of good governance and apply them practically to their specific organisation.
WCVA has produced a second edition of 'Good governance: a code for the third sector in Wales' and, like the first edition, it has been drafted by the sector for the sector. It is now more accessible to smaller, volunteer run organisations and to less experienced boards, and sets out clear common standards that all charities should aspire to achieve.
This publication will be available in Welsh shortly / Bydd y ddogfen hon ar gael yn Gymraeg cyn bo hir.
WCVA has launched an invaluable guide to help trustees run their charities and voluntary groups.
Entitled 'Faith and hope don’t run charities (trustees do)', this third edition is full of the latest advice and information to aid trustees in the day-to-day running of their organisations. This packed volume covers subjects including strategic planning, accountability, people and financial management and decision-making, and plenty more besides.
