The Board of Directors meets in public on a regular basis.  The agenda for the meeting is timed and Board members, led by the Chair, do their utmost to stick to those timings. At times, when the discussion warrants it, we may overrun. Any questions on the papers presented are taken at the end of the meeting, through the Chair. 

There is a briefing pack available for anyone who attends, with a separate sheet for questions if there isn’t enough time to ask these or a personal answer is required. Any questions can be passed to the Trust Secretary, Charlie Helps, who will ensure that a response is provided.

The papers are available on this website on the Monday of the week of the meeting. To access papers, please click on the folders at the bottom of this page. In those months when there is no public meeting a range of reports will still be published, including those required by our contract with the commissioners.
