What is a Trustee?

Trustees provide an essential and legal requirement for all charitable organisations. Trustees are recruited to take overall responsibility of the organisation, ensuring that the charity delivers its charitable aims and works within both recommended and legal guidelines.

There are a number of responsibilities involved in becoming a Trustee and as such you are advised to read the publications available from the Charity Commission.

The Board of Trustees is made up of professional persons, proprietors, senior managers, and directors. The team is lead by the Chair and supported by the Treasurer and Secretary. Non-Executive Directors also hold Trustee positions within the board.

All Board of Trustees and Management Committee are volunteers and dedicate a lot of time throughout the year to ensure the day-to-day management of Oxford Pride. Both the Trustees and Management Committee oversee this activity, but only the Trustees are involved in strategic decision-making.

What will I be doing?

  • Overseeing new membership sign ups throughout the year and before each Annual General Meeting.
  • Maintaining an up-to-date register of members and register of interests, which should be available to other Directors upon request.

  • Coordinating correspondence with all members, including the advertisement of all meetings and provision of agendas.
  • Taking minutes at all General Meetings, Board of Trustee Meetings, and the Annual General Meeting, and promptly circulating them to relevant members (this role may be delegated in the case of illness, exceptional circumstances, holiday, or other suitable agreed reason).
  • Working with the Treasurer and the Chair to ensure the financial regulations and contracts are adhered to in line with Company Law, Charity Law, and the Policies of the charity.
  • Listed as the Company Secretary and a Director on Companies House.
  • Being available throughout the annual Parade Day to answer any queries (excluding in the case of illness or other exceptional circumstances).
