Sally Stephens of NCVO, says that Charity boards who want to be part of this effort should ensure that they’re thoughtful in their action, and keep in mind their charitable objects and powers. There are many ways that organisations can support our collective effort through direct action, donations, and campaigning, but trustees must be mindful of their duties when deciding how to participate.If you would like to contribute the support effort in Ukraine, but you’re not sure of your powers as a trustee, the Charity Commission has published new guidance for charities and trustees on supporting Ukraine. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/ukraine-humanitarian-crisis-guidance-for-charities-and-trustees
