Guidance Note - Charity trustees’ duties, responsibilities and liabilities

CO.CHA.26
This Guidance Note - Charity trustees’ duties, responsibilities and liabilities is an overview of the legal duties, obligations, responsibilities and potential governance and operational liabilities of a charity trustee of any charity.

It is intended for those who are already trustees of charities, as a reminder of their responsibilities, and as an introduction to the subject for those considering becoming a trustee of a charity. It will also be helpful to those who are planning to establish a new charity, and for those considering conversion of their charity from an unincorporated legal form (e.g. an unincorporated association or charitable trust) to an incorporated legal form (e.g. a company limited by guarantee or CIO) with a view to limiting potential liability of its trustees.

As well as outlining the key legal responsibilities which charity trustees have, the note also touches on the subject of insurance for charity trustees.

This Guidance Note - Charity trustees’ duties, responsibilities and liabilities is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
