We offer a wide range of support and advice about governance. We can help you recruit trustees for your not-for-profit organisation, or answer any questions you may have about the roles and responsibilities of a trustee.

Trustees are an integral part when it comes to managing and administrating a charity. They are responsible for the strategic direction and health of your organisation. If you are thinking of becoming a trustee, read our guidance here.

Depending on the type of organisation the people responsible for governing it may be known as the Management Committee, Directors or Board of Trustees.

Having good governance systems in place will help you deliver your services more effectively. It helps avoid difficulties with regulators and reassures funders and people using services that your organisation is worth supporting.

We can help in the following areas.

Inspiring Women is a Cheshire West Voluntary Action campaign to encourage more women to take up leadership roles within the voluntary sector. Through our dedicated Facebook page we share trustee roles and other opportunities, inspiring stories and role models to help you achieve your goals.
