Detail of outcome
The commission has published updated guidance for trustees that takes account of the feedback from the consultation.
Detail of feedback received
The infographic gives an overview of the consultation feedback. The feedback strongly supports the new draft of the essential trustee. It also highlights aspects that need further development. The commentary explains how the commission will apply these findings to develop a new version of the essential trustee, for publication this summer.
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.
