•To safeguard the good name and values of the organisation
•To ensure the effective and efficient administration & Financial Stability of organisation
In addition to the above statutory duties, each trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions.
Trustees are expected to attend monthly meetings (held on Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 7-9pm in Coventry), and also be available by email in between meetings to discuss the day-to-day workings of the charity, as and when the need arises.
‘Every decision that is made at Trustee level at Kairos WWT has real consequences for the charity and thus there is an important feeling of connection with the charity’s aims and objectives. This, coupled with the opportunity to work with like-minded people who are passionately committed and giving their time freely, means that joining Kairos WWT as a Trustee is also joining a community who are committed to a common cause. The feeling of connection, community and the chance to use professional skills in a volunteering capacity – and thus having the potential to positively affect someone’s life – is very rewarding.’ (Jane Osmond, Trustee and Volunteer)
