A training session for charity trustees is to be held at Uckfield Civic Centre on Saturday, April 28.
It will be led by Beryl Hobson of Professional Governance Services – previously head of the large charities division at the Charity Commission – and will cover the duties and responsibilities of trustees and recent developments in charity law.
Beryl, who lives at East Hoathly, said being a trustee of a charity could be a rewarding and worthwhile activity which made a real difference to a community or group but it was wise to learn about, and keep up to date with, the legal and financial responsibilities that came with the role.
The training session is designed to help charity trustees, who are the people legally responsible for the overall management and decision-making in a charity. They might equally operate under another name such as a member of the management or executive committee, a governor or a director.
The trustees are responsible for the direction and performance of their charity and if something goes wrong in the charity’s work or finances they bear ultimate responsibility.
The training session will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm and the cost is £50 per person.
