Our Trustees

Our board of trustees is responsible for the charity’s strategic governance and comprises 12 people who live or work in Richmond.

They oversee all aspects of the charity including our almshouses, community and welfare grants and are also responsible for the charity’s historical endowed assets made up of our property and investments.

Trustee positions are voluntary, but travel expenses can be reimbursed. The board meets once every two months in Richmond. There are also regular meetings of the sub-committees: Finance Committee, Property Committee, Welfare Committee and Risk Management Committee.

Trustee positions are held for a maximum of three terms of four years each. When vacancies arise, they are usually openly advertised locally. For further information, please contact Juliet Ames-Lewis on 020 8948 4188.
