Do you know how to manage conflicts of interest?

Charity trustees are responsible for making sure that any conflicts of interest are identified and prevented from influencing the decisions that the trustees make about the charity.

Trustees have a legal duty to act only in the best interests of their charity. They must not put themselves in any position where their duties as trustee may conflict with any personal interest they may have.

This can feel tricky and complex, but Baldwins Accountants have created a simple checklist to help trustees follow a process when they become aware of potential conflicts of interest.
