If our frontline volunteers are the hands and feet of the charity, then our trustees are the brains.Their role is to make the strategic and financial decisions and ensure we are operating within the law, especially with regard to safety and ethics. The trustees meet at least once every three months or more frequently if they can.
We are currently strengthening our recruitment process for being a trustee. It will include application forms and interviews, reference requests and DBS checks and an induction. We will approach people regarding the possibility of them becoming a charity trustee, based on their experience and knowledge of the courts system and of the work that we carry out. We have a wide range of trustee roles with different responsibilities including ex-service users.
