The Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for strategic decisions of the charity, considering recommendations from the Chief Executive and the Executive Team.

The Board has legal accountability to ensure our charity assets are used exclusively to further the objectives of the charity. Our trustees receive no remuneration for their services, nor do they have any business or personal interest in the charity’s contracts.
