The overriding duty of all charity trustees is to advance the purposes of their charity as well as several basic responsibilities: Trustees are responsible for the proper administration of their charity Trustees must make sure that the charitys assets and resources are used only for the purposes of the charity. They must make sure that the charity is run in accordance with its governing document, charity law and all other laws and regulations that affect its activities.

They are accountable if things go wrong. They can delegate some tasks as the governing document allows but ultimate responsibility remains with trustees. (source know how non profit) Strengthening Solihulls Voluntary and Community Sector Supporting Solihulls Voluntary Sector Ready for Success Role of a Trustee Contd Trustees have to act reasonably and prudently in all matters relating to their charity The law imposes a duty of care on the trustees of charities. This is sometimes expressed as a duty to exercise such care and skill as is reasonable in the circumstances. The duty will be greater if a trustee has (or claims to have) any special knowledge or experience, or if their business or profession means they can reasonably be expected to have special knowledge or experience. In matters where trustees are not expert, they will be expected to take appropriate advice. This duty is very significant. Essentially, provided trustees can show that they are acting reasonably, in a way which furthers the legal objectives of the charity, it is unlikely that they can be criticised under charity law. (source know how non profit) Strengthening Solihulls Voluntary and Community Sector Supporting Solihulls Voluntary Sector Ready for Success Role of a Trustee Contd Trustees must safeguard and protect the assets of their charity A charitys assets include its investments, cash, land, intellectual property, staff and reputation. Trustees have a duty to act collectively Decisions and responsibilities are shared, so all trustees should take an active role. Trustees can act by majority (unless the constitution says otherwise), but all the trustees are collectively responsible for decisions made by the trustees. Once a decision is made all trustees are bound to support it. Some trustees will have particular roles. For instance, the chair is likely to be a figurehead for the organisation and to have a special relationship with senior members of staff. The treasurer will be responsible for explaining the financial situation to the rest of the trustees. However, responsibility for decision making still lies with the board as a whole. (source know how non profit) Strengthening Solihulls Voluntary and Community Sector Supporting Solihulls Voluntary Sector Ready for Success Role of a Trustee Contd Trustees must act in the best interests of their charity The interests of the charity are paramount. Trustees should not allow their personal interests or views to override this: they must exercise independent judgement. Trustees must avoid any conflict between their personal interests and those of the charity The main implication of this is that the scope for trustees to receive personal benefit from their charity is very limited. Trustees must deal appropriately with any conflicts which arise between their own personal interests and those of the charity. Trustees must also be alert to possible conflicts between duties they may owe to other organisations and the duties they have to the charity.
