New guidance for charity trustees

The Charity Commission has published new guidance for charity trustees on fundraising from the public.

  1. Plan effectively
  2. Supervise the charity’s fundraisers
  3. Protect the charity’s reputation, money and other assets
  4. Identify and ensure compliance with the laws or regulations that apply specifically to the charity’s fundraising
  5. Identify and follow any recognised standards that apply to the charity’s fundraising
  6. Be open and accountable If you would like further information, please see the guide to trustee duties.

With thanks to IDPE for this notification.
