What is a Trustee?

Charity trustees are the people who serve on the governing body of a charity. Trustees work voluntarily, and receive no payment for their work.

A trustee may be known by other names such as; director, board member, governor or committee member.

Charity trustees are responsible for the general control and management of the administration of a charity.

Trustees have and must accept ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of a charity, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up.

Trustees also have to ensure that the charity remains within the legal framework of the charity commission at all times and that they deliver what they say they will, when they will.
