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.

He is an occasional columnist for a number of periodicals and a feature writer for Prospect Magazine; he is a visiting professor at Reading University and a visiting fellow at Oxford.
"It's rather poignant to reflect at the centenary of 1914 that we have failed our wounded for the last 100 years. We must do better this time and I want to be part of the process that makes that happen."
Rob is also a Trustee of the Help for Heroes Charity.
