Charity Commission produces knowledge test quiz for Trustees

The Charity Commission has launched a new quiz which tests Trustee’s knowledge of their duties and responsibilities and aims to increase awareness of the Commission’s 5-minute guides.

There are 10 multiple choice questions on topics such as conflicts of interest and a charity’s reserves policy. There is a feedback section for each question and links to further guidance on each topic.

This is a really useful resource to help Trustees identify the areas where they may need to increase their knowledge base. The quiz can be found here: Take the trustee quiz here.

If you require further information on your role as a trustee, please refer to the ‘Support for Trustees’ section of our website, or contact VODA’s Core Services Team on 0191 643 2636 or email [email protected].
