Trustees have ultimate, collective responsibility for directing the affairs of Aniridia Network, ensuring that it is: solvent, well-run, and delivering its charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it was set up.

There are legal duties and good practice to be followed, detailed in the Charity Commission guidance on the responsibilities of trustees.

Trustees are volunteers, and receive no payment (other than to repay necessary out-of-pocket expenses incurred).

There can be between 3 and 5 trustees of Aniridia Network who must all fulfil the general trustee role description  Within these are three roles available which have additional  duties:

Join the trustee board

Could you lead our charity to: ensure it runs properly and enjoys success?
Don’t take it for granted that others will do it all, or even as well as you could. We’re seeking new people to join the current trustees on the board – how about you?

Being a trustee can be hard work, but also be rewarding and provide opportunities for personal development and improving employability.

If you would like to be a trustee fill out the trustee nomination and declaration form.
