Governance consultation

Trustees thank Members for sharing their views on proposed changes to the Trust’s Articles of Association during a recent consultation

The existing Articles of Association are the Trust’s key governance document, detailing a range of matters including its charitable purposes; what powers it has to achieve these; Trustee appointments and their powers; Members and their rights; and how Trustee and Member meetings are conducted.

In 2020, our Trustees revised the Articles (see download below) to reflect changes in company and charity law and to incorporate current good practice. They consulted with the Members about the changes via a survey run by research and polling organisation Civica, which then produced a summary report of the feedback (see download below).

Trustees will debate this feedback and use it to inform their final proposals as they bring forward new Articles for Member approval at an Extraordinary General Meeting which will follow the Annual General Meeting on Saturday 19 June 2021.
