Board of Trustees

Dr Anne Hong is our Chair of Trustees. Information about our Trustees is within the Our People section of this website.

The existing Trustees are responsible for the selection, recruitment and induction of new Trustees, applying policies which are in place to ensure that:

  • The selection and recruitment of Trustees is inclusive and transparent.
  • The Board are aware of their duties and responsibilities.
  • The Trustees have the necessary skills to fulfil these duties and responsibilities.
  • The Trustees are aware of the Charity’s aims and purpose.

The key priority is to recruit new Trustees with empathy and passion for the work of the Charity. Potential candidates are selected on the basis of skills needed to complement and enhance those of the existing board whilst aiming to reflect the diversity of the community in which we operate.

Prospective Trustees initially meet with representatives of the Board and Management Team and are introduced to the existing Board prior to appointment. New members are given a comprehensive induction and are offered appropriate guidance / training to ensure that they are equipped to fulfil their role.

Trustees’ meeting are held five times a year, including an annual “away day” to allow time for strategic discussion and continued training. Certain responsibilities are delegated to the following committees:

  • Finance & Income Generation Committee – meets approximately four times a year and is responsible for the financial oversight and control of the Charity.
  • Governance & Strategy Committee – this is a newly established committee (2019) with responsibility for promoting good governance and ensuring that the Board is updated with relevant laws and regulations. The committee also lead on development, implementation and monitoring of the Charity’s strategy.
