These notes provide a summary of the responsibilties of the Trustees of any Christian charity, avoiding the 'policing' language sometimes seen in such lists and injecting a clear Christian dimension. The aim behind these is for the staff and Board to work in harmony.

  1. Maintain a servant attitude
  2. Promote and protect the organisation's development
  3. Set a clear direction and keep this under review
  4. Oversee the right use of resources
  5. Take individual responsibility

This is followed by a list of personal requirements.  A supplement (Training Notes TN5a) offers a similar structure for the role of staff.
