Charity Governance

Lead charity trustees in England and Wales

This guidance note is aimed at those charities registered and operating in England and Wales who employ staff or undertake activities that would warrant the additional assurance of a lead trustee to provide specific support and guidance to the board or others. For small charities with no, or few, staff it may be more pragmatic that specific areas of the charity’s activities are divided between the trustees on an ad hoc basis. However in such cases the delegation of authority and powers should still be formally agreed and reviewed by the board regularly.
