Guidance for Trustees

Charity trustees are the people who exercise control over, and are legally responsible for, the management of a charity. They are volunteers who give their time to improve, protect and support the charitable purposes and activities that occur in Ireland. Although they are volunteers, the role of a charity trustee carries significant responsibility. The board of trustees of a charity is collectively responsible for the oversight of that charity. While charity trustees can delegate tasks, they cannot delegate accountability.
