Making the most of your Trustees' Reports

The Trustees' Report is a Charity Commission compliance requirement and the SORP requires that it is ‘fair and balanced’, but it is also a powerful communication tool that can help you evidence your objectives and good governance to your stakeholders including the all important funders and potential future funders.

We can advise you on more than just the disclosures that are required to be included.  We work with you to understand who the users of your accounts are and at whom the Trustees' Report is aimed - be that funders, beneficiaries, regulators or a combination of several stakeholders.  We can then also help you determine an appropriate tone for the narrative as well as advising on layout and presentation.

In a climate where charity governance and transparency is under scrutiny, we can help you ensure that you make the most of your Trustees' Report so that they become effective communication assets.
