Charity trustees are people involved in the management and control of a charity, you may call yourselves a committee, a board, Directors or something less formal – the charity trustees for the last financial year should be listed in your charity’s Trustees’ Annual Report.
A person or organisation is connected to a charity trustee if they fall into one of the following categories:
- spouses, civil partners and cohabitees of a charity trustee
- child, stepchild, parent, grandchild, grandparent, brother or sister of a charity trustee (and a spouse of any such person)
- an institution controlled by a charity trustee or a person connected with them or two or more trustees/connected persons when taken together
- a corporate body or company in which the charity trustee or a person connected with them has a substantial interest, or
- a Scottish partnership (business) in which the charity trustee or, a person connected with them, is a partner.
Please tell us about any payment or benefit received by a charity trustee or person connected with a charity trustee.
Out of pocket expenses paid to charity trustees, for instance travel expenses to attend meetings, should not be included in this section.
