Foundation Trusts are based on being a 'membership organisation' and it is to these members that our services are ultimately accountable. The members - people from the local communities that we serve, our staff and service users - elect representatives to become Governors.

The Governors work with our Board of Directors to agree the future plans of the organisation. They also decide who to appoint as the chairperson and non-executive directors of the Foundation Trust.

What if I need a helping hand?

If you have any additional needs that will help to make getting involved in the work of the Trust easier for you, then please let us know and we will provide tailored support so you can be fully involved to the level you wish. If you have not been involved as a member in an organisation before, let us know and again we will support you so that you can make the contribution you want.
