Who is your chair?
David Lister, a professional landlord and stamp dealer. He has been a trustee for 15 years and chair for five.
Any other notable trustees?
Among the seven trustees are Stephen Chipperfield, who has a background in marketing and puts a big emphasis on the impact of our work, and Ben Cussons, a former yachtsman.
How often does the board meet?
Six times a year. There are also interim conference call meetings. These are an effective way of not occupying a lot of the trustees' time but making sure they have enough input.
When was your last governance review?
Last year. The shape of the organisation has changed over the past three years, with more emphasis on working with schools and making sure what we do has an impact. As a result, we have changed our auditors and there will be more emphasis on our five-year strategies.
How do you recruit trustees?
We will look around our circle of friends and supporters and also advertise locally and nationally.
What is the biggest issue the board is dealing with?
The uncertainty of the economy: what the future funding landscape will look like and what our space in it is.
