Many of our Trustees have a strong connection with MacIntyre, either through having relatives supported by us or as parents of disabled children and adults themselves. Our Chairman, John Berriman, is the brother of one of the first people supported by MacIntyre.
Role of Trustees
Generously giving their time and specialist skills, our Trustees contribute expertise in medical, legal, finance, education, risk management, property, sales & marketing, HR and general management.
Additionally, they are responsible for ensuring we remain focussed on relentlessly meeting service levels, maintaining the quality of our people and values, managing resources, mitigating risk and operating within our financial limits.
Our Trustees work to ensure that our financial position and ability to meet our charitable objectives and commitments is not compromised.
The Trustees meet 6 times per year where the Directors report on their operational and financial activities within the organisation. Twice yearly the board meetings are extended to review strategy and operational performance in more detail.
The Trustees also provide scrutiny, guidance and expertise through the Audit, Risk and Safeguarding, Education, Governance Review, Nominations, Property and Remuneration and Wellbeing sub committees. Full details of these sub committees can be found in our Chairman’s report in our annual report and accounts.
