The Charity Commission has published analysis of the consultation responses to draft revisions to its core guidance ‘The essential trustee’.
While many respondents saw the revision as a step forward, the Commission is planning to improve the draft further. It will focus on:
- developing the summary section as an ‘at-a-glance’ statement of the basics.
- clarifying which parts of good practice it is vital for trustees to get right, and what the Commission expects of trustees.
- providing clearer reassurance to the vast majority of trustees who discharge their duties responsibly and to the best of their ability.
- also consider the specific and detailed feedback.
They hope to publish the updated version early in the summer.
