Our Governance

We strive to ensure that we continue to operate in an open and transparent manner. Each year, we prepare fully audited accounts and annual reports which we are happy to share with our partners, supporters and the general public.

Age & Opportunity is governed by a Constitution and our Board of Trustees are committed to maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance.

Read our Terms of Reference of the Finance, Governance, HR, Quality, Safety and Nominations Committee.

Read our Terms of Reference of the Audit and Risk Committee.

Age & Opportunity is fully compliant with:

Trustees, all of who are non-executive and independent, and are drawn from diverse backgrounds, bring a broad range of experience and skills to the Board of Trustees deliberations.

There are clear distinctions between the roles of the Board of Trustees and the senior  management team. The Board of Trustees are responsible for providing leadership, setting overall strategy and monitoring budgets and outcomes of the organisation. The Board of Trustees are also responsible for identifying the risks affecting the organisation and ensuring procedures are in place to reduce and manage the major risks identified. The Board of Trustees are committed to working effectively, behaving with integrity and being transparent and accountable. There are currently ten Trustees. The Trustees bring to the Board their significant business and decision making skills gained in their respective fields together with a broad range of experience and views.  To view a full list of our Board members and their biographies click here.  

The day to day management is delegated to our CEO. Our CEO prepares and presents policies, business plans and annual financial budgets and management accounts for consideration and approval to the Board of Trustees. There is a schedule of matters reserved to the Board of Trustees for decision and a schedule of matters delegated to the CEO.
