About Governors

What do our Governors do?

Our Governors play a vital role in bringing the views of the town to us. They also promote our role and activities in their own communities.

They represent us on internal Committees and Working Groups and also on external bodies and organisations. They are among the first to be consulted on issues of the day and on future initiatives.

Governor Duties

To prepare for their role, Governors take part in an induction programme outlining their role and responsibilities, together with a briefing of our activities. Governors also participate in a rolling programme of training and briefing activities including: tours of our Charitable Services, themed workshops and dedicated discussions on key topics.

There are at least four meetings of Governors a year. One is the Annual General Meeting held March each year and 3 special general meetings spread throughout calender. The output of these meetings provides valuable feedback to the Board of Management and Leadership Team, assisting them in their deliberations and decisions.
