Our Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall financial control and strategic direction of the Charity.
They meet regularly during the year to consider, determine and review British Blind Sport's strategies and policies, and to receive reports from senior management.
Our Trustees bring to the Charity a breadth of knowledge and expertise with extensive backgrounds in the legal, finance and business management professions, communications and professional services.
An annual review of Board members is undertaken to ensure that the Board is made up of individuals with the right balance of skills and experience to meet the needs of the organisation. There is an independent level of expertise on the Board, and currently includes finance, business and legal services, human resources, information technology, user and VI involvement and sport specialisms.
All Trustees work for British Blind Sport on an unpaid as well as voluntary capacity.
The Board have delegated some of their powers and responsibilities to a series of committees and panels that cover:
- Audit, Risk & Internal Control
- Safeguarding, Wellbeing & Safety
- Governance, Ethics & Compliance
- Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
These committees and panels comprise of Trustees, management and external advisors/experts.
