As well as the main Board, we have three Board Committees who meet on a quarterly basis:

  • Governance and risk
  • Human Resources
  • Finance

As well as attending the Committees and Board meetings, our Trustees attend our Service User Forums which are held at least 6 times a year. It is at these meetings that our Service Users can inform the Board of their view on current and future services, ensuring their views are heard at Board level and inform and influence the strategic direction of the charity.

Our Trustees come from diverse backgrounds, each bringing with them different skills and experiences from their varying careers.
