What does the Board do?

 

 

 

Our Board is ultimately responsible for the organisation itself: making sure we are financially sound and that we comply with the law in everything we do.

 

It also has responsibility for deciding the strategic direction of the organisation: what we need to be do in the future and what needs changing.

 

The Board does not manage the day to day affairs of the association: that is the job of the Chief Executive and colleagues.

 

It does review performance at a very high level but doesn’t involve itself in individual cases or matters relating to specific estates.

What skills or experience will I need?

 

We need to make sure that our Board members have a wide range of skills and experience.

 

Equally as important as legal, financial or management knowledge is a good broad range of life skills that you might have developed from your place of work, from running a home or from being a committee member of a local organisation.

 

Training is provided and is an important part of being on the Board. As well as helping individuals learn new skills, regular training sessions helps everybody work together more effectively.

 

All new Board Members receive induction training to help them settle into the role and find out more about the organisation.

How is the Board made up?

 

We have 7 Board members currently and are recruiting for a few more.
