About our Board of Trustees: The Board of Trustees is led by an independent Chair and is served and supported by a senior executive team led by the Chief Executive.
The Board of Trustees meets bi-monthly and its meetings are generally held during working hours over an afternoon at our Head Office in Liverpool. On occasions, Trustees will meet prior and post Board meetings. There are also 2 Board Committees, one of which is the Audit and Risk Committee, which meet at least four times a year or as needs of the business dictate.
Our Trustees: Trustees hold non-executive positions; appointments are made for an initial period of three years. Trustees are responsible to ensuring the effective governance, performance and financial management of the charity. They bring a range of skills, experience, interests and behaviours required to develop and deliver the charity’s aims, its strategic approach and future direction, and act as advocates promoting the work of the charity.
Our Trustees are ambassadors for our charity and so may be approached to attend and/or speak at events on our behalf or to support our own events, such as our annual staff conference. They are contacted for their advice and input on matters which are relevant to their role and particular areas of expertise.
They have much experience of operating at Board or senior level and can demonstrate the following:-
- a high standard of ethics
- independent, sound judgement
- shared values
- strategic vision
- appropriate skills and attributes
- genuine motivations for working with us
- the ability to make good on and honour their commitment to us through appropriate investment of their time, expertise, experience, skills and capacity
- understanding and following Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership
- understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of being a Trustee
- free from any conflicts of interest including independence from competitors and commissioners.
