Some of the responsibilities involved in the work of a Trustee are indicated below:
Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do.
Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run.
Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives – making a difference to the local community
Trustees use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims
- Ensure the charity is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit
- Compliance with the charity’s governing document and the law
- Act in the charity’s best interests
- Manage the charity’s resources responsibly
- Act with reasonable care and skill
- Ensure the charity is accountable
Whilst the time commitment is not onerous we are looking for people who can bring skills to complement the existing Board and will take an active interest in the work of Parenting 2000. There is no financial reward associated with becoming a Trustee but you will be contributing to improving services to families in Sefton in a proactive and meaningful way.
