Our Trustees

Trustees oversee everything a charity does, from setting its strategy to being responsible for its work and finances, and we couldn’t operate as a charity without them. We are lucky to have trustees with such a wide range of professional skills.

Our trustees meet for 6 board meetings a year, as well as for our AGM, when we share our financial results, and the trustee’s review of the financial year. We welcome staff, service users and local professionals to our AGM, so do let kay@adhdandautism.org know if you’d like to join us!

Trustees are responsible for the overall governance of the charity rather than the day to day operational management:

Governance is about leadership and direction. This means ensuring CAAS has a clear, shared vision of its purpose, what it is aiming to achieve, and how in broad terms it will go about doing it. Trustees set clear aims and objectives, and ensure the charity’s assets are safeguarded and used effectively and exclusively for the benefit of those the charity exists to help.

Day-to-day management of the charity is delegated to the CEO, with the support of the Senior Leadership Team. The board is responsible for supervising the CEO, and ensuring the charity is well managed and operating within the agreed policies, the law, and its budget.

We are so grateful to our trustees, who perform this important office for us, and give so willingly of their time.

Lynne Fearn

Company Secretary
