Board of Trustees


 

The Board of Trustees consists of seven volunteers drawn from different backgrounds, and living and/or working within the local area. The Trustees meet formally once a quarter to review and discuss all aspects concerning the Charities.

   

   
   
      The Trustees are responsible for:
  • ensuring that the conditions laid out in the Governing Instrument and by the Charities Commission are met fully
  • setting the future direction of the Charities (including almshouse refurbishment)
  • ensuring the needs and expectations of the residents are being addressed
  • managing the Charities’ investment portfolio
  • overseeing the Charities’ accounts and ongoing financial performance
  • setting Heating Lighting and Maintenance contribution levels
Trustees are not responsible for, or involved in, the day to day running of the Charities or for providing direct services to the residents.
