Our Boards of Trustees are responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of the Charities.
They meet regularly during the year to consider, determine and review our strategies and policies, and to receive reports from senior management. Our Trustees bring to the Charities a depth and breadth of expertise with extensive backgrounds in the military, in the legal, finance and medicine professions, communications and professional services.
