Trustees aim to add value to their organisation and have a positive impact on society, whilst at the same time getting personal and professional growth and challenge. The role can be rewarding as well as challenging, as Trustees get to grips with the complexities of the charity sector and learn to manage the boundaries between the Trustee boards and the senior management team.
There is a lot of guidance for Trustees on their general legal and financial responsibilities (The Charity Commission and NCVO are good places to start). But the role is much more than this and can feel lonely without peer support.
