Please note: this session is not delivered by RDA and will be attended by individuals outside of our organisation.

Engaging in training outside of RDA is valuable for learning across the wider sector. We encourage this as a way of sharing best practices and for networking opportunities.

The programme comprises free, high-quality training including webinars, clinics and panel discussions to support people to become and serve as effective trustees. 


Event Details

“We will spill the beans on the golden questions you need to ask about a charity’s finances. Find out how your curiosity can be a superpower.

Most trustees and aspiring trustees aren’t finance buffs, so how do we navigate our way through the mysteries of charity finance to ask the right questions?

Questions like:

  • “Should I be worried if the charity only has £500 in the bank?”
  • “Why is an entry showing red on the register of charities?”
  • “How do I know if 3 months kept back for a rainy day is enough?”

So, what are good questions to ask? And how should you interpret the answers? Join us to find this out.

This session doesn’t assume any prior financial knowledge and is particularly aimed at aspiring and serving trustees who don’t work in finance.”
