The Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. They are the people who lead Outpost and decide how it is run. Our Trustees use their skills and experience to support the charity, helping to achieve its aims.
Trustees also make sure that the charity complies with its governing document, make balanced and adequately informed decisions, thinking about the long term as well as the short term.
They always act in good faith, and only in the interests of the charity and all trustees remain jointly responsible for the charity funds, its governance and as a whole.
Trustees also often learn new skills during their time on the board and being a Trustee can be very fulfilling.
