Charity trustees are drawn from all walks of life and typically devote much of their time, free of
charge, to supporting the important aims, objectives and goals of their organisation.
However, many trustees remain unclear about what their role should involve and the scope of
the obligations that may be connected with their position. It is a complex area that is governed
by a host of rules and regulations. Some of these are enshrined in case law. Others are laid down
and administered by organisations such as the Charity Commission. Against this background,
this guide helps trustees understand what the role involves and offers practical guidance to
support good governance.

If you thinking of becomeing a trustee there are a few things you need to know regarding payments.
The basic principle is that trustees must not put themselves in a position where their personal
interests conflict with their duty to act in the interests of the charity unless authorised to do so.
However, trustees are entitled to have their expenses met from the funds of the charity. Expenses can include a wide range of costs including, for example, travel and other costs of attending meetings, specific telephone and broadband charges, travelling on trustee business, and providing childcare or care of other dependants while attending to trustee business.

Charity trustees are the people who serve on the governing body of a charity. They may be known as trustees, directors, board members, governors or committee members etc. Whatever their name, anyone who is responsible for the general control and management of the administration of a charity is classed as a charity trustee (Charities Act 1993, s.47).
The duties and responsibilities of charity trustees have been set out in a variety of forms, but it is sensible to refer to the current Charity Commission guidance contained in their publication, The Essential trustee: What you need to know (CC3).
