Support for Chairs of Smaller Charities


The Association of Chairs have developed a rich library of resources through the Beacon Programme. Chairs and Vice Chairs of charities in England with an income under £1m can join the programme for free and access guides and toolkits online.

The programme offers:

  • low-cost workshops in nine locations in England

A workshop travel bursary is available for organisations under £100k if booked a month ahead.
