There are 6 staff governors, 14 public governors from across the Bay and 5 appointed governors. The Governors provide a vital link between the communities and groups they serve and the Trust Board, which has the statutory responsibility for the management of the organisation.
They also have a number of statutory roles, including providing their view on our forward planning, appointing and deciding the terms of office of the Chair and other Non Executive Directors of the Board, approving the appointment of the Chief Executive, appointing or removing our auditors and receiving our annual accounts, auditor's reports and annual report.
The Council of Governors have regular meetings that are open to FT members, and the public are welcome to observe. Governors, FT member and members of the public can ask questions at the start of the meetings of the Council of Governors, provided that they have given details of the question to the Chair at least 2 working days in advance.
