As the trustee of a charity you want to know that you’re doing a good job. As a volunteer, you are passionate about the charity, but you have a “day job” and a busy life. Franklin Hart Consultancy offers a range of services tailored for trustees to ensure that you have the skills you need to help your charity face the challenges ahead and keep on delivering services to its clients.
- Franklin-Hart offers a “light-touch” consultancy service: Over a short period this service provides solid recommendations for action that you can use.
- We are delivering a series of talks to trustee networking groups on change proofing™ your organisation, amongst other topics. See the programme of events page for details or look at the Small Charities’ Coalition website which incorporates the trustees network, for groups in your area.
- We can do a short talk or interactive workshop of 1-2 hours at one of your regular meetings on a topic of your choice or an area we specialise in such as Risk management, the Strategic planning cycle or Succession planning.
- We also offer a range of training courses for trustees, staff and volunteers for a more in-depth look at the issues. Almost all of these courses can be delivered to you locally and at evenings or weekends, or as part of an annual trustee away day.
Details of the cost of these services can be found here.

A Thought: Trustee Training
Did you receive an induction when you joined and have you had training and updates on the key issues since? Many organisations don’t induct and train their most senior volunteers; the trustees.
That’s usually fine, but in times of change or challenge it can turn out to be a problem. Consider our consultancy services; developing training programmes.
Thinking about how to make the best use of scarce resources; would online study materials or short workshops via interactive video (for instance Skype) be useful for you as a trustee? Leave your thoughts in the comments box below.
