Management and Governance
The organisation is governed by a voluntary Management Board which is responsible for strategic planning and decision making, financial governance and probity and has employment responsibility for all staff.
To support our work we provide a wide range of volunteering opportunities within the organisation which are openly advertised through a diverse range of media outlets.
All volunteers complete mandatory training, are subject to a six month probationary period and complete a comprehensive induction process. Volunteers appointed to the Management Board receive specialist training to assist them to fulfill their roles in relation to governance of the organisation. Members of the Management Board are proposed at the Annual General Meeting. Office bearers are elected at the first Management Board meeting following the annual general meeting.
