In our latest Charity and Social Enterprise update, Leona Roche has commented on the Charity Commission's new Essential Trustee guide. This is a key piece of guidance for charity trustees, it seeks to explain the fundamental responsibilities and duties undertaken by trustees. The commission wanted to make the new guide easier to understand and apply – its language is certainly clear and direct. The commission is encouraging all trustees (new and experienced) and those thinking of becoming a trustee to read the guide.

As well as explaining the main trustee duties, the new guide also sets out what the commission considers to be good practice for trustees seeking to fulfil those duties. The commission makes it very clear that it expects trustees to follow its recommended good practice, albeit applying it appropriately to their charity’s particular circumstances.
