How We Are Governed

We are an independent charity (no.1150840) and registered company (no. 8155114), required to provide returns to the Charity Commissioners and Companies House.  The Trustees have ultimate responsibility for the charity and the Chief Executive is responsible for the operational management of the organisation. There is a Trustees Board that meets regularly and sub-committees such as Finance feed into this Board.

Julian Hillman
Chair of Trustees



The Trustees Board is required to maintain and nurture the financial health of the charity. Its role includes: regular scrutiny of finance policy, monitoring of reserves, approval of budgets, management  and annual accounts subject to audit. We also ensures that the aims of the charity are central in all financial decision-making. Detailed work is carried out through the Finance Committee, chaired by the Treasurer, which is answerable to the main Board.
