The BSR is a registered charity in England and Wales, and members of the Council are its trustees. Charity law imposes a number of specific duties on all charity trustees. In essence these are:

  • A duty of compliance with the charity’s objects, its governing documents and all relevant legislation and regulation.

  • A duty of care, to ensure that the charity is well run and efficient and that professional advice is sought in order to manage risk.

  • A duty of prudence in respect of managing the charity’s assets.

The full terms of reference for the Council are being revised currently, and will be available here once approved.
