About the trustees
Trustees hold an important role by providing direction and governance to the organisation. We seek to hold the charity to account; decent, honest and legal. We operate the Board in accordance with Charity Commission guidance. The Board meets approximately once a month. The role is not remunerated although reasonable expenses can be claimed.
The Trustees are currently seeking new members to add their expertise to the Board. We would be particularly interested in applicants with a legal, financial, marketing or transport operations background. Similarly, we are keen to ensure that the Board is representative of the communities we serve so local applicants would be most welcome.
