Delivered by: James Gare, Partner of Monahans

Cost: £5.00 – food and refreshments

To celebrate Trustee Week 2017, VAS and Involve Swindon have organised this free training session. The training is aimed at general trustees (who want a better understanding of charity accounts) and treasurers, as well as those who are interested in becoming a trustee but would like to find out what the role entails. The training is free but the charge of £5.00 is to cover the cost of food and refreshments for the evening.

About the workshop:

Understanding charity accounts
Statutory charity accounts can be complex at the best of times, but for charities, accounts can be even more complicated. In this workshop, led by James Gare, we will be reading a set of charity accounts together, cutting through the jargon and unravelling the important story that a set of statutory accounts tells you about your organisation.

Charity finance for trustees
If you are a charity trustee or a senior manager and have wondered what you should be doing to govern your organisation’s finances, this part of the course will be very useful. We will be looking at the legal responsibilities of trustees and the circumstances in which they can be held personally liable. We will be examining what makes a good set of management accounts and what you should be looking for when you read them. We will be highlighting areas of significant danger and the tools available to trustees to ensure that things do not go wrong.
