Financial Resilience and Making Effective Use of Resources

In the guidance provided by the Charity Commission to help new and existing trustees understand their role and what is required of them (CC3 The Essential Trustee), initial emphasis is placed on the prudent use of resources. Trustees have a stewardship role, which means ensuring that resources are used for charitable objectives and not put at risk unnecessarily. However, trustees are not just responsible for the safekeeping of resources, there is also a duty to use them effectively.

This masterclass, presented by our member firm MHA Carpenter Box, will show you how you can make the best use of your organisation’s resources, focusing in particular on investment, banking and property.
