This page is currently being renewed to give information about all our Trustees.
We are fortunate in having a broad mixture of Trustees with people with knowledge of large and medium sized voluntary organisations as well as disabled people able to draw on their personal experience and expertise in leading the organisation. We meet bi-monthly and receive up to date reports about the financial situation and organisation’s activities as well as set the strategic direction of CIL.
We have up to 12 trustees a third of whom are elected for a 3 year period at the AGM in June each year. 75% of the Trustee Board must be disabled people. We are committed to making our meetings as accessible as possible and reimburse all costs to attend. We are happy to assist in arranging taxis, if necessary.
