Committees and Working Groups
The Council of Trustees has established specialist committees and specific working groups to help carry out the work of the charity.
At all meetings of the Council and committees, if any of those present have a possible conflict of interest it is declared and, if necessary, they would be excluded from Council business in relation to the matter.
The Finance, Audit and Risk Group advises the Council on matters relating to the financial management of the charity and its investments and other assets.
The Governance Review Group considers changes in regulations and current guidance to advise the Council to enable best practices to be implemented.
The Remunerations Group decides overall pay awards, following recommendations by the CEO, considering benchmarking and agreed-on budgetary limits, and reviews to all staff benefits.
The Nominations Group manages the process of Trustee recruitment and succession planning, ensuring the required mixture of skills and experience is included on the Trustee Board.
Working Groups are time-limited and tend to relate to strategic priorities and developments
