Some general information about being a trustee

The role of the board is to govern the charity as a collective trustee group. The ultimate responsibility of a charity trustee is to direct the business of the organisation. Trustees work behind the scenes, set the strategy and ensure people at the front line have what they need to do their jobs well. Ultimately the buck stops with them and the level of engagement between the board of trustees and the people at the front line will vary enormously from charity to charity.
