It is accepted good practice that the trustees of community groups and voluntary organisations should be provided with sufficient information about the group or organisation itself. Preparing an information pack or file for new trustees is a simple and effective way to do this.
The following documents provide some basic information about the role of trustees and can be used as part of an information pack for when your group or organisation has recruited a new trustee. They may also be of interest to many existing trustees as well.
Although some of these documents contain information specifically for the trustees of registered charities, much is relevant to all trustees.
