The Charity is an all-volunteer incorporated association governed by a Constitution which is approved by the membership. Trustees must be members of the Charity and are elected by the members at the AGM, or appointed by the board of trustees, in accordance with the terms of the Constitution. Members who are appointed by the board must stand down at the next AGM but are eligible for election at that AGM.
On appointment, trustees are provided with full information regarding the history and objectives of the Charity and encouraged to develop the knowledge, the duties and responsibilities expected of them. The trustees mitigate exposure to any risks which are assessed, at least, annually.
