Treasurer / Trustee - Tameside Stroke Awareness Support Group

Tameside Stroke Awareness Support Group is a social group for people who have experienced a stroke and for family members, carers and friends of those that have. We meet on a Wednesday at 10:00am-12:00pm in Dukinfield Park at the Pavilion. New members are always welcome. Our aim is to enjoy life and have fun no matter what. Trustees carry out a range of roles and duties that basically help the organisation to run well. Trustees make the major decisions affecting the organisation. They are responsible for setting out the strategic direction of the charity and must be confident that it is well managed and meeting its objectives. It is the trustees’ responsibility to ensure the organisation is financially secure and complies to all relevant legislation. The Treasurer works to ensure that proper accounts are kept and to develop financial policies.

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.
