Day 9 of our Advent Calendar gives us the opportunity to talk about our 9 trustees who have a vital role to play in the governance, setting the strategy and overseeing the vital work of our Cornish charity.

Our Board of Directors  (Trustees), all give their time in a voluntary capacity to ensure that the charity is run appropriately and according to Charity Law and they have overall financial and legal responsibility for the organisation.  They formally meet every three months and come from medical, financial and commercial backgrounds.

Our Chief Executive and Executive Team are responsible for the day-to-day running of the charity and its associated trading companies, however they all report on a regular basis to the Board of Trustees.

Find out more about who our Trustees are HERE.


We are also currently actively seeking applications from individuals interested in joining our high performing Board of Trustees. These roles would suit people with energy and skills to contribute to the governance role of the Board that sets the strategy and oversees the vital work of our Charity.

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have experience in any of the following areas of expertise:

  • Finance with formal accountancy qualifications and commercial experience.
  • Income generation skills which could come from retail, fund raising or marketing and media experience.
  • Clinical knowledge in a medical, nursing or therapies field of expertise.

For an informal discussion please contact Paul Brinsley, Chief Executive by email at: or by telephone on 01726 65711.
