Richard Levinge, Director, Ease Training


We have included Safeguarding on the Agenda – a key theme for the Charity Commission

‘Trustees are responsible for safeguarding even if certain aspects of the work are delegated to staff. Trustees should therefore make public their clear commitment to safeguarding by publishing the charity’s safeguarding policy and stating that failure to follow it will be dealt with as a very serious matter.

This is a key governance priority. Any failure by trustees to manage safeguarding risks adequately would be of serious regulatory concern to the Commission. ‘

Charity Commission October 2018

Recent testimonials (see website)

‘The charity trustee training was extremely informative and useful – I would highly recommend it to both new and experienced trustees. There was an enormous amount of content packed into the day, and all extremely relevant and up to date. Each one of the experts was engaging and interesting, so it was always easy to follow. All in all, a very valuable and enjoyable day – thank you.’ Relate Avon

Charity Trustee Training  Bristol March 2019

I found the training relevant, interesting and most enjoyable. You covered some serious governance issues with the a very good balance of gravitas and humour, so delegates found the content suitably important but not foreboding – which is a hard balance to strike. The Chair will concur that we had some Trustees who aren’t normally huge fans of ‘external intervention’ waxing lyrical about the session, which is no mean feat. Cintre – Bristol
