Small charities have the potential to make a big difference in people’s lives. Their size means that they can be more flexible, innovative and responsive than many larger charities, and they can get to know their local area inside out.

Being on the board of a small charity can be hugely rewarding, but it comes with strategic and operational challenges. How should the board conduct itself if the charity has very few staff? What if many of the operational burdens fall on the board? How do boards separate strategic and operational issues? With few resources, how can boards manage key risks?

This seminar run in partnership with The Clothworkers’ Company, will:

  • explore some guiding principles for trusteeship in small charities and how these might differ from larger charities;
  • offer some practical tips and advice including some key questions boards should be asking themselves; and
  • share case studies of charities that have successfully defined roles, maintained strategic direction, coped operationally and managed risk.
