Free trustee training for charities

By Anita Jaynes on 24 August, 2020

Bath law firm Stone King is offering free virtual training sessions for trustees and senior management teams at charities, including guidance on managing the effects of the coronavirus crisis on their charity.

Reema Mathur, Partner in the firm’s Charity & Social Enterprise team, said, “In current circumstances even those who have been charity trustees for many years may feel uncertain or have gaps in their knowledge on how to steer their charity through the effects of the coronavirus. We’ve built our training around the Charity Commission’s core guidance and look at recent case reports to illustrate the key principles, but we also cover very pertinent issues such as financial governance and resilience in the current climate, how to hold meetings and decision-making in a virtual space and recognising and reporting serious incidents.”

The firm’s ‘Essential trustee and governance in practice’ training programme is designed to equip charity trustees and staff with the knowledge they need to carry out their roles effectively. The sessions look at best practice and how to prevent problems, but also give advice on how to deal with any issues that do arise.  There is also an opportunity for Q&A at the end of each session.

Free, one-hour training webinars are running on Thursday 24th September at 2.30pm and at 10am on Thursday 26th November. To find out more and to book your space click  here.
