Charity Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees has overall control of the Charity, its property and funds. The Trustees meet as a full Board at least 10 times a year. Its principal committees are:

  • Finance and Audit
  • Capital projects

The Trustees are recruited from a range of backgrounds and professions with the aim of providing a balanced and relevant spread of skills and experience on the Board. The current Board includes depth of skills in finance, HR, building, law, and compliance, as well as direct experience of a parent whose daughter uses the Charity’s services.

The Director of Services report provides a summary at Board Meeting of relevant developments across the Charity’s service centres, shops, properties and caravan. It also includes maintenance and fundraising as well as political and economic issues. The Trustees are alerted to new Charity Commission guidance, other relevant alerts and to new regulatory requirements with training provided as required.

Meet our Trustees

The Trustee Board is supported by a Board of Governors, which has a distinct and separate identity from that of the Trustees. The Trustees agreed a Scheme of Delegation setting out formally the powers delegated to the Governing Board.
