Trustee and leadership team development

Helping you to navigate board governance

This bespoke in-house training is suitable for all of your trustees: whether in their first trustee role, new to your charity or just in need of a refresher of their duties.

We can work with your executive team or chair to tailor the training to suit your charity’s particular requirements. The training can be held at your offices or at ours and we can work around your trustees’ availability.

The objective of the training is for your trustees to feel confident in their duties and responsibilities and have a good overview of the legal and regulatory requirements of a charity and what good governance looks like in practice.

What we will cover

  • An overview of your charity’s structure
  • The role of charity trustees – duties and the Charity Governance Code
  • Trustees’ liabilities
  • Current climate for charities and update on key legal issues
  • Further sources of information

We are happy to design training that suits your charity.


Prices start from £1,200 + VAT for a two-hour training session.

There is no upper limit on the number of people who can attend. However, in order to keep the session practical it is preferable to keep group sizes below 15.

Board meeting attendance

As an alternative, we can provide a shorter session at one of your board meetings.
