  • 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 in the charity

Most of the board’s work takes place at board meetings at which they

  • Set direction and strategy
  • Ensure that the work done is effective, responsible and legal
  • Safeguard finances, resources and property
  • Prepare annual reports and accounts and consulting with stakeholders
  • Make clear about boundaries with those who work on behalf of the charity
  • Ensure that the board operates effectively
