Who’s who


There are currently 15 volunteer Trustees who form the governing body of the Trust. A meeting of all Trustees takes place three times a year. Day-to-day management of Trust activities is overseen by the Executive Committee, who with the Director implement strategic decisions, allocate funding and oversee the organisation. There is also a Finance Committee, who meet at least twice a year to review financial activities. As a charity, the Trust has an annual audit; the latest audit can be found here.
