Our Council of Governors, which has been in place since May 2016, provides an essential link between the Trusts’ Members and the organisation. It meets formally at least three times a year and comprises of elected local members, members of staff, and representatives of local partner organisations. Governors are an important group of people within the Trust, who represent the views of our membership by being the “voice” of local people and surrounding communities.

Governors play a key role in the governance of the Trust and work hard to ensure that the interests of all members are taken into account whenever key decisions are made.

Governors also play an essential role in holding the Board of Directors to account, through the Non-Executive Directors, for the performance of the Board.
