Our governance

Our Board of charity trustees seek to govern the charity in an exemplary manner following best practice guidance from the Office of the Scottish Charity Register (OSCR).

The Trust is subject to the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, and charity trustees are legally bound to ensure that they discharge their duties appropriately in relation to the Act.

The responsibilities of our Board include:

  • Providing leadership and setting the overall direction of the Trust
  • Directing the Trust’s strategy and structure
  • Monitoring, and be responsible for, the performance of the Trust
  • Ensuring that the Trust complies with relevant legal and regulatory requirements
  • Acting as guardian and custodian of the Trust’s assets
  • Ensuring that the governance of the Trust is effective

The Board delegates the day to day responsibility for the management and operation of the Trust to the Chief Executive and leadership team, which allows the Board to concentrate its efforts on strategic governance matters.
