A Practical Resource for Trustees (updated May 2018)

Trustee boards are vital to the development of Hertfordshire’s vibrant charity sector. However, establishing and running a board is not a straightforward process. #TeamHerts Volunteering, working in partnership with HCF Training and Development, have worked with expert authors to put together this practical resource to help Hertfordshire charities to adopt best practice and make their boards work more effectively. This was first launched in 2017 to help charities comply with the new Code of Governance and has now been updated and refreshed to incorporate latest guidance.
