Our Trustees

The Trustee Board


The charity has a Council of Management called a Trustee Board who is responsible for its governance. Trustees are elected on the basis of their skills and knowledge.

The Trustee Board has two general functions:

  • To safeguard the charitable status and finances of BECT
