Trustee Training for Churches: Session 2 – Afternoon

Sat 24 Apr 2021

2pm to 4pm Virtual


ACAT’s Trustee Training for Churches course has been specially designed to equip trustees with the skills they need to meet their legal and moral obligations.

The course has also been tailored to ensure that trustees have the knowledge to consistently manage their churches in the most appropriate way.

Please note: This course is taking place over two sessions - and we advise delegates to book sessions one and two at once.

Session two explores the legal duties of trustees as set out in Charity Commission guidance ‘The essential trustee: what you need to know, what you need to do’, including:

  • Ensuring their own eligibility to be trustees;
  • Ensuring the charity carries out its purposes for the public benefit;
  • Complying with the charity’s governing document and the law;
  • Acting in the charity’s best interests;
  • Managing the charity’s resources responsibly;
  • Acting with reasonable care and skill; &
  • Ensuring the charity is accountable.

Please note: This is the first of two sessions – please do book both.
