Blog post: Making the most of the Trustees' report
Under new regulations, introduced in January 2016, all registered charities are now required – amongst other things – to submit a Trustees’ annual report to the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland each year, along with their charity accounts.
For some, this report (also known as an annual report) will be nothing more than a legal requirement, another piece of red tape that must be produced.
However, the Commission would argue that this is actually doing the report a disservice. Yes, it must be prepared and submitted to the regulator – there is no getting away from that. However, if used correctly, the Trustees’ annual report is much more than just another document. It is a vital communications and public relations tool.
The Commission's latest blog post looks at why the report is important and how you can use it to its best advantage. THe post is available to read on cccni.blog here.
