There are over 168,000 registered charities in England and Wales, each one requiring a committee. Good governance is essential for all voluntary and community organisations, ensuring that legal requirements are met and to provide the organisation with direction and focus.

The role of each individual may vary depending on the size and nature of the organisation. All committee members must uphold the values and objectives of the organisation and act with integrity.

This course is aimed at current and potential committee members/trustees within the voluntary and community sector. The skills and understanding developed will ensure your board functions effectively and efficiently.

Customer Review

This course was invaluable for my association, as many of the trustees had not been part of a committee before. The course was straight-forward, easy to understand and contained many useful hints and tips.
