VAST Vault – Governance & Trustees

The Trustees are responsible for ensuring good governance within an organisation which can be daunting.

Governance is a term used to describe the trustees’ role in:

  • the long term direction of the charity, including its objectives or purposes 
  • implementing policies and activities to achieve objectives
  • complying with legal requirements 
  • accountability to those with an interest or ‘stake’ in the charity.

We are here to help you navigate the complexities so that you can best serve your Charity with the confidence that you will be complying with key requirements of the law.
