Summary

Act as the Charities Treasurer, being responsible for the day to day management of its finances.

Detailed description

Allocated Tasks to the Treasurer

Look after finances, such as making sure all membership fees are collected and all payments are made.  


Share details about income and spend with other Trustees.  


Make sure Gift Aid is being claimed.  


Make sure proper accounts are kept and draw up policies on finance and investment. 



Tasks for the Whole Team


All Trustees are equally responsible, but they might decide to split tasks between them.


Trustees work together to make sure the Charity:


Manages money well


Have enough money for now and in the future. This means having a reserves policy and making sure fundraising takes place, if it’s needed.


Have a budget in place. Trustees then agree how to manage the budget with other volunteer teams.


Follow Scouts policies and relevant legislation


Follow POR, key policies (including safety and safeguarding, and data protection), and charity regulations.


Follow employment law, if staff are employed.


Create Trustees Annual Report and Statement of Accounts, and get it checked by an appropriate person. If they’re a registered charity, they’ll need to share it with the charity regulator.


Hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM).


Look after buildings, insurance and property


Look after records of ownership of property and equipment.


Have the right insurance for people, buildings, and equipment.


Make sure buildings and equipment are working well.


Manage risks


Carry out regular risk assessments and put the right risk mitigations in place.


Help the charity to operate well, today and in the future


Work with Lead Volunteers to meet their charity aims.


Champion Our Volunteering Culture, and make sure volunteers are aware of it, reflect on it, commit to it, and apply it in their teams.


In carrying out the above, Trustees also:


Keep a record of Trustee Board meetings, and complete any actions that are agreed.


Recruit new Trustees.


Co-opt Trustees onto the Board if they need people with particular skills or knowledge.


Get expert advice, if needed. This could be on health and safety, managing money, buildings, equipment, or employees.


Network with other Scouts Trustees to share knowledge and experience.


Create sub-teams for specific activities, such as finances, if needed.

About Fenland Scouts

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to be a volunteer with the Scouts.

You don’t need to have been a Scout when you were younger.

You don’t even need to know how to put up a tent.

Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers.

If you can help in any way, maybe as a mini bus driver, treasurer, fundraiser, first aider, team member, you have a skill or hobby you would like to share or you are a student who wants to boost their CV or fulfil the volunteering for Duke of Edinburgh’s award, get in touch today.

Parents who volunteer together get the chance to spend more time as a family doing activities they may not otherwise be able to do. Whether this is camping, going up mountains, going abroad, taking part in adventurous activities, we welcome families not just young people.

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare be in once a year or ince a day, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in. Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life.

Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is.
