Main duties and responsibilities

Each individual member of the trustee board has a responsibility to contribute to the discharging of the board’s duties. They can do this by:

  • regularly attending, preparing for and taking a full part in meetings
  • actively contributing to setting policy and strategic direction, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance
  • monitoring whether the service complies with its governing document, whether it meets Citizens Advice standards and how well the advice needs of the local community are being met
  • monitoring the financial position of the charity and ensuring that it operates within its means and objects, and that there are clear lines of accountability for day-to-day financial management
  • supporting the development of the charity through participation in agreed projects
  • actively seeking to further the strategic objectives of the charity, and acting in the best interests of the charity at all times
  • maintaining an awareness of the activities of the charity
  • taking responsibility for his or her own learning and development
  • maintaining confidentiality about any sensitive or confidential information received in the course of duties as a trustee
