Becoming a village hall trustee – what you need to know! 

The majority of village halls are charities run by local volunteers, keen to support their local hall to the best of their ability. Being a village hall trustee, however, need not be a daunting task.  

Because of the considerable pressures placed on volunteers during the pandemic, there is now reticence among many older volunteers from wanting to return to their previous voluntary roles. Therefore, many community halls are now trying to recruit new trustees to govern the charity, manage services and restart activities. 

It is essential therefore, that newly recruited volunteers are welcomed and properly inducted so that they have a basic understanding of their new roles as charity trustees. This session will cover the key aspects, duties and responsibilities of becoming a village hall trustee.     

This session will provide an overview of the main induction issues, so that delegates can have a better understanding of:   

  • The hall’s Governing Document (Trust Deed, Conveyance, Indenture, etc.) 
  • Their key legal duties and areas of potential trustee liability 
  • The need to sign a Trustee Declaration Form 
  • Constitutional and organisational issues in managing a charitable village hall 
  • The need for a formal ‘trustee induction pack’ 

Delegate fee:    £35 + VAT (new membership concessions can be viewed here)
