Clore Social Leadership has launched a free practical guide to board leadership in the social sector called Board leadership: A practical guide for the social sector. The move coincides with this year’s Trustees’ Week, an annual event taking place across the UK from 13 – 17 November that showcases the work of trustees, and highlights opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
The handbook offers essential advice, information and support for Charity Treasurers in all aspects of their role. There are many guides to charity finance but Treasurers need not only accounting knowledge but also the skill and competency to work well with others and to ensure that other trustees are enabled to fulfil their own responsibilities for finance. This handbook is particularly helpful with the ‘softer’ aspects of the role.

The phone service is aimed at people running small businesses or charities and recognises the particular problems they face getting ready for the new law, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We have launched a new consultation on the Code of Fundraising Practice, which will enable charities, fundraisers and members of the public to provide feedback on proposed changes to the Code regarding data protection.
The consultation seeks to update the Code to mirror the upcoming GDPR legislation and address the issues identified in the number of penalty notices levied by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the last two years.
