Charity Insight and Events

Providing continued support

To help your trustees and senior officers be effective governors, our charity services include a free training and events programme, the Agenda.


Overcome governance challenges

Running a charity comes with a range of governance responsibilities and regulation. If you, colleagues and trustees find yourselves asking the question “how do I know what I don’t know?”, our programme can help.

Your questions answered

Our programme is here to tackle your key questions and concerns. To bring maximum value to your organisation, we also partner with charity specialists from other disciplines, including the Charity Finance Group.

Timely, useful insights

Whether you or your trustees have plenty of experience or are new to the voluntary sector, we can add value. We offer regular, insightful reviews of topical discussions, new legislation and guidance.
