Trustee Board

The Role

The Trustee Board is a team of volunteers who work together, as charity Trustees, to make sure the Group is run safely and legally. At the heart of their role is a focus on strategy, performance and assurance. Effective Trustee support helps other volunteers run each sections programme that gives young people skills for life.

Members of the Trustee Board take on the responsibilities of a charity trustee; they act collectively and in the interests of the members of Scouts locally:

  • Ensure our charity is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit
  • Comply with our charity’s governing document and the law
  • Act in our charity’s best interests
  • Ensure our charity is accountable
  • Manage our charity’s resources responsibly
  • Act with reasonable care and skill
