PCC Members are effectively the Trustees of the Charity. This page provides some resources to support induction of PCC members by providing a briefing on what it means to be a trustee.

We have produced a short guide to introduce PCC members to their roles and responsibilities as Charity Trustees. This resource is currently only available as an online PDF which can be downloaded here.  You’ll need to check that all new PCC members are eligible to serve. This can be done by getting a declaration signed as part of the APCM nomination forms, or by using our Fit and Proper Persons Declaration.

We’ve also made a short training video which can be used as part of an induction session, and to accompany the Trusteeship guide.

You may also find helpful our short guide to what every PCC member needs to know about finance which has been produced in collaboration with Data Developments.



The Charity Commission produce a range of helpful guidance notes, which can be found on the Charity Commission website.
