Our Trustees-

All the committee members have to be trustees (as stated in IAM Group Handbook). So see the committee page to see who they are.

‘Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives. Depending on what the charity does, they will be making a difference to your local community or to society as a whole’. If you want to know more check the charity commission website.
