What are the legal responsibilities for trustees?

Trustees have duties to their organisations that are similar to company directors, but also are required to comply with charity law.

They must:

  • Act collectively exercising reasonable care and skill.

  • Safeguard the assets of the organisation.

  • Act in the best interests of the organisation, avoiding personal conflicts.

  • Keep information at the Charity Commission up to date.
