Our Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees usually meet about ten times a year, in the evenings. The Board is the overall management body for the Trust and the Chief Executive is accountable to it.
We are responsible for agreeing the Trust’s budget and its strategy and plans.
We review the work of every part of the Trust each year, and we must ensure that the Trust works within its aims and objectives, and within charity and company legislation.
