Meet the Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees of Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society (Stockport CP) is the governing body of the charity. The Society’s Chief Executive Officer and Senior Management Team report directly to the Board of Trustees.
The Society can appoint up to 14 Trustees to serve on the Board and a minimum of 5 Trustees is required to be in attendance at Board Meetings in order to make decisions.
The Society’s Trustees are people who share its values, have lived experience of disability; or have cared for or are caring for a disabled family member or friend and/ or have expertise in areas relevant to the work of the Society. Anyone over the age of 18 can become a Trustee provided they have a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and they are not disqualified from acting as a Director/Trustee.
The Board of Trustees meets monthly except for August and the Society’s AGM is in September.
I have enjoyed attending Board meetings, visiting Cheddle Lodge and look forward to contributing further to the Society and learning more about the good work they do.
Having previously volunteered for organisations where he has had a personal interest, and where the beneficiaries are in reasonably privileged positions, Rob has chosen to be a Trustee of Stockport CP because he does not have a specific personal interest in the Society.
This does meant, he hopes, that he make a genuine difference to the organisation and its service users, by maintaining a completely independent, objective perspective, and he will endeavour to act in the best interests of the Society at all times.
