This is what trustees need to do…

Follow the principles

Trustees will need to work together to make the best decisions for your charity.

Often there will not be a perfect solution but it must be an informed and responsible one for your situation.

The standard must be that your trustees:

  • act within their powers
  • act honestly and with good intentions, and only in your charity’s interests
  • be sufficiently informed, taking any advice needed
  • take account of all relevant factors
  • ignore irrelevant factors
  • manage conflicts of interest
  • make a decision that is within a range of decisions that a reasonable body of trustees can make.

These principles should always guide the approach. But make especially sure that your trustees can show that you have used them for decisions which are:

  • complex, or
  • high impact, or
  • involving significant money or other property, or
  • high risk

There are some practical things you can do and think about to support these principles so that your charity makes decisions correctly. We have summarised them here.

Schools, colleges and community groups in England can apply for grants to support the education and development of children and young people through educational, cultural, sporting and other projects. Of particular interests are projects which will help enhance the self-confidence, team working skills and future employability of children and young people. In most cases grants will be made on a relatively small scale. Many grants will be under £2,000, most will be under £5,000 and only in a few cases will grants exceed £10,000. The funding provided by the BlueSpark Foundation and can be for physical assets (such as iPads, sports equipment, or lighting for stage productions) or for services or facilities (such as sports coaching or music or drama tuition) or simply for the provision of experiences (such as theatre visits). These examples are intended to be illustrative and not restrictive as to the funding which BlueSpark may provide to support projects. Applications can be submitted at any time and must be made online on BlueSpark Foundation’s standard application Form.

As the environmental crisis impacts more and more people across the globe, what role can charities play? How can we incorporate values of sustainability into our own charities? And how can we work as a collective on this issue?

To spark collective action, we’ve partnered with Neighbourly to put on this free event.

Insights Talk: The Role of Charities in Sustainability – Thursday 14 July

This awareness week we are offering you free online training on the different categories and types of cancer with a focus on the study of cancer support.

For many individuals, diagnosis can be a daunting and overwhelming time.

Being able to access the right levels of care and services provides valuable support when people need it most.

As cancer treatments are improved and more people survive cancer, an awareness of the impact of living with cancer long-term and knowledge of how to support individuals is vital for anyone caring for someone with cancer. 

The free online training consists of 4 manageable units:

There are no exams!

You will complete assessment questions based on the skills and knowledge you have gained from the above units.

Expert tutor support is available via email, text, or phone call.
