Sample documents and templates for trustee boards.

These are some of the most important documents that an organisation needs if it wants to have a healthy, well-run trustee board. NCVO's governance experts have written or signposted to model versions of each one.

Please note that this isn’t an exhaustive list of the documents, plans, policies and records that you might need. None of the information should be taken as legal advice and we recommend that you tailor these sample documents and templates to your organisation.
