The trustees are the people who have “the general control and management” of the charity.
Members can be elected to the management board and act as trustees. This normally takes place at an AGM. Our maximum number of trustees is 15 and the minimum 5.
Some people are not allowed by law to be a charity trustees;
- · Someone with an unspent conviction for an offence involving dishonesty or an offence under the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005.
- · Someone who is an undischarged bankrupt or has a Protected Trust Deed.
- · Someone who has been removed under either Scottish or English Law or the courts from being a charity trustee.
- · Someone who is disqualified from being a company director.
Although there is no minimum age for charity trustees in the 2005 Act, however, we would expect charity trustees to be over the age of 16.
