Our Board


How we are governed:

Our Foundation is governed by a Board of voluntary non-executive Directors. The principal function of the Board is to ensure that the Organisation is being run in accordance with the objects as specified in our Memorandum and Articles of Association. The Directors are legally responsible for the proper functioning of the Foundation including accounting procedures.  Our Directors receive no payment of any kind for their service to the Foundation.  The Board meets eight to ten times a year and is advised by sub committees, which are made up of Board members.

  • Audit Risk and Governance Sub-Committee
  • Fundraising Sub-Committee
  • Nominations Sub-Committee

Sub-Committees are set up from time to time to advise on specific matters.
