How trustees are to work is described in a charity’s governing document. Area meetings are also advised to draw up terms of reference for their trustees describing their responsibilities and tasks in much greater detail. Such a document does not have legal status; it can be modified whenever the area meeting feels that changes are needed, without making reference to any external authority. Such terms of reference also provide an essential briefing document for anyone who is considering whether to accept nomination as a trustee.
