Consultation description

The essential trustee is the Charity Commission’s guide to charity trustees’ responsibilities. The commission wants to make this guide as clear as possible and easier for trustees to use, to support them in complying with their duties. The commission wants your views on a new updated draft.

The new draft follows recent commission guidance on decision making and conflicts of interest. It reflects other changes such as the introduction of Charitable Incorporated Organisations. It’s designed to work better as online guidance. (For technical reasons we can only publish as PDF during the consultation; the final version will also be available in HTML.)

Your comments will shape the final version to be published in spring 2015.
