Introduction

Introduction

  • Big Society – Central Government Vision

  • Pressures on the VCS sector and Trustees role


Big society in buckinghamshire

Big Society in Buckinghamshire

  • Buckinghamshire has a greater number of charities per head than the average UK ratio

  • VCS sector already doing a massively significant job in Bucks

    Examples of Big Society achievements already in Buckinghamshire:

  • Community Libraries

  • Youth Clubs

  • Car Schemes

  • Bucks Big Society Bank

  • Delegation of services/decision making


Devolution

Devolution

  • Service and Budget pressures VS devolving Power and Responsibility

    Resulting in

  • Less anti-social behaviour

  • Informal, supportive networks

  • Flexible approach rather than a one size fits all approach

    Issues around

  • Democratic legitimacy and risk

  • Trust


Trustees role

Trustees Role

  • Support

  • Leadership

  • Active Control

  • Swift Judgements

  • Increasing appetite for risk

  • Financial sustainability


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Turbulent times are a test of resilience.

  • It may be hard always to remain optimistic; but you can remain steadfast.

  • being a trustee is a real part-time job, albeit an unpaid one. It takes up much more time than you are initially told. Inevitably, this means that those with the most time available (but not necessarily the most relevant skills) will be the ones to volunteer for extra duties.

  • Boards need a mix of skills and experience. Passion for the cause is, of course, essential but it is not the only criterion.
