Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees meets approximately quarterly or as required. All the members give their time for free.

Under One Roof’s constitution provides for up to 12 Trustees.  We currently have six appointed. We are actively working to identify the gaps in our representation and skills to manage a new charity and will recruit more Trustees once we have completed an initial Strategic Review and Trustee Skills Audit.
