Is it possible for trustees to delegate responsibility?

The Governance Academy reminds trustees of a simple principle: you can delegate tasks if your governing document allows but you cannot delegate responsibility.

This principle is at the heart of charity governance!

Trustees are responsible for the charity.

Tasks can be delegated if your governing document allows for this, so please check if you are not sure.

If your charity wishes to discuss delegation with the Governance Academy please Ask the Academy
