The Board of Trustees

The Trustees have collective responsibility for oversight and development of the Trust in line with OSCR guidelines, for agreeing the organisation’s strategy, its governance, and work with its professional staff to account for the effective management and delivery of agreed projects on time and within budget.

Time Commitment

The full Board meets four times each year. These meetings last 2-3 hours and usually take place in Perth with a remote attendance option.

Between full Board meetings, Sub-Committee meetings are held. Trustees will also be expected to contribute to one or two Sub-Committees.  The basic time commitment is likely to average around eight days per year.
