  • There are six Board meetings a year, and each Trustee generally also serves on one specialist sub-committee comprising another six meetings per year.  Meetings are weekdays late afternoon / early evening, currently held on Zoom due to Covid restrictions.  Trustees are also encouraged to regularly check in with and be a sounding-board for their counterpart on the senior management team.


  • Trustees are responsible for all aspects of the charity’s governance, and must respect confidentiality wherever required.


  • Trustee appointments are subject to references and a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
