Being a charity trustee can be incredibly rewarding but there is so much information on-line that it can be a a bit overwhelming.

BRAVEHOUND decided to provide training for current and potential trustees and to make the training open to other military charities in Scotland.

To find out what being a trustee is all about and for an opportunity to ask any question you may have, do join us for 8  1hr zoom sessions covering all aspects of being a charity trustee.

The course, which is tailored to Scottish Military charities,  starts on February 11th and runs for 8 weeks.

The cost is just £50 per participant.

  • Charities are governed by their trustees; dedicated volunteers who are willing to give up their time to help a cause that they are passionate about.

  • However, it is important the they understand their roles, responsibilities and legal commitments. Experience suggests that many charities get into trouble because trustees are simply unaware of their duties.

  • If a charity wants to do the best by its trustees, and vice-versa then an induction course is a very wise investment.
