Quaker Social Action's trustees bring skills, expertise, and passionate committment to meeting our mission
The work of Quaker Social Action is governed by a group of trustees; volunteers who are responsible for setting the strategy and forward direction of our work.
Overseeing such a diverse range of services can be a challenge, but our trustees are deeply committed to our mission and in really understanding the difference our work makes to people living on low incomes.
"Charities need good governance as well as money and an efficient operation to make an impact.
As a trustee I can share my skills and experience to make a difference to people's lives."
Loveday Shewell, Quaker Social Action trustee.
Our trustees' role is to carefully steward the assets of the charity, to ensure we use what resources we have available to us to maximum effect.
They meet four times a year as a full trustee body, but supplement this with sub-committees, such as finance & fundraising, staffing, nominations and governance, risk & compliance, as well as short life working groups, for example, overseeing the complex development phase of our newest project, Move On Up.
