Good Trustee Guide

This page is free to all
A summary of The Good Trustee Guide.

The Good Trustee explains trustees' roles in detail and gives guidance on running a healthy board.

It's used as an introduction for new board members and a handbook for long-serving trustees.

It was revised and updated in 2015 to cover recent changes to the law.

This summary of The Good Trustee Guide (pdf, 530KB) is adapted from the first part of the book, The essentials. We also have a free easy-read version of the summary.
