Trust Members

Members are accountable to the DfE and have ultimate responsibility for the Trust achieving its charitable objectives. They sign off the Articles of Association and have the power to appoint and remove the trustees.

The Trust comprises 5 (majority foundation) Members. Their key purpose is to hold the Trust Board of Directors to account and ensure that the Trust is well run and well managed. The Members include representatives from the Dioceses of Exeter, Salisbury and Bath & Wells. Members who are independent of the trustees provide challenge and scrutiny to the Board.
