The charity sector survives and thrives thanks to people like you - people who volunteer as trustees for the benefit of others. The responsibility of trusteeship, and the volume of legal information on what you should and should not do, however, can be overwhelming. This bestselling guide will help you find your way and make good decisions. It provides easy to understand information about the responsibilities of trustee boards and straightforward advice on planning the work of the organisation, getting funding, and managing staff and volunteers. Who is this book for? New or prospective trustees, or those wishing to brush up their governance skills. Also useful to those from other sectors seeking an update on charity governance and students on third sector courses.
