New trustees to receive welcome pack
WCVA is pleased to support the release of a Charity Commission welcome pack for new trustees.
All new trustees who supply the Commission with an email address will now receive the pack. The information is designed to ease them into the role and raise awareness about their responsibilities. It focuses on the main trustee duties
and provides a starter pack of accessible information on governance basics, filing requirements, support available from the Commission and practical steps.
The pack will be an extremely useful resource to support good governance. We would recommend that new trustees take the time to read the information when they receive it and that charities refer to the pack when they induct people into their organisations. The pack can also be used as a “refresher” for existing trustees!
WCVA provides a range of resources to support good governance and endorses the Charity Governance Code. Trustees can also access information and guidance across Wales through the Third Sector Support Wales network of County Voluntary Councils (CVCs).
