Carers Federation Board

The Role of The Board

The role of the Board is to:

  • Determine strategy and priorities for the organisation

The Board meet at least 10 times a year. These meetings are timed to allow the Board to monitor strategic performance on a quarterly basis, with sign-off in May of the Annual Accounts and Corporate Strategic Plan.

High standards of corporate and personal conduct are key requirements for the Federation. We are funded through a variety of sources and feel accountable to the community for the effective use of these monies.

Executive Board members are required to agree to work within a code of conduct.  These include:

  • Selflessness
  • Objectivity
  • Openness
  • Leadership
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Honesty

Board Responsibilities

The Board consists of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Company Secretary, Trustees & Co-opted members

Co-opted Members

Co-opted members are invited to join the Board for a specific period of time to assist with pieces of work, strategy, vision etc.  Each co-opted member is issued with an individual role description when they join us, setting out clearly joint aims and responsibilities and the term of the co-option.
