Trustee - Tameside Stroke Awareness Support Group
This grid shows when you can volunteer for this organisation. E.G Monday morning.
This is a broad summary of some of the roles and responsibilities you have as a trustee:
- Furthering the charity’s overall purpose, as set out in its governing document, and setting its direction – for example, by developing plans and strategies and monitoring progress.
- Ensuring the work of the charity is effective, responsible and legal – for example, by the use of policies and procedures and systems for monitoring and evaluating the charity’s work.
- Being ‘accountable’ to those with an interest or stake in, or who regulate the charity – for example, by preparing annual reports and accounts and consulting with stakeholders.
- Safeguarding finances, resources and property and ensuring they are used to further the charity’s purposes – for example, by insuring and documenting assets, maintaining financial systems, monitoring
income and expenditure and ensuring the charity is financially sustainable or viable.
- Being clear about who carries out work on behalf of the charity – trustees, staff, volunteers – and respecting boundaries between the governance role of the board and operational or day to day matters.
- Ensuring the board operates effectively – for example, ensuring it receives the right reports and advice, by planning the recruitment and induction of trustees, providing trustees with support and training or carrying out reviews or appraisals of the board’s effectiveness.
