Building your Board

Recent government attention on the competencies of individual board members has lacked a genuine focus on the Trust Board as a corporate entity.

While the competence of individual trustees is important, the overall competence of the Board is crucial to improving outcomes for children and young people. Facilitated by Emma Perkin, The Constant Group (on behalf of CST).
