NSPCC Board of Trustees

Working alongside the Executive Board and the Council to meet our objectives

The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting and monitoring the NSPCC’s strategic objectives. There are currently 15 trustees who make up the board.

There are 6 Divisional Trustees, providing the link with supporters and volunteers across the country. The trustees meet between seven and nine times a year.

The Executive Board

The Executive Board (Chief Executive Peter Wanless and the Directors) works closely with the trustees and carries out the day-to-day running of the organisation.

The Board delegates some areas of its work to sub-committees:

  • Audit and Risk
  • Finance
  • Fundraising (in an advisory role)
  • Nominations and Governance
  • Policy
  • Remuneration
  • Service delivery
  • Divisional Trustees

Annual Council Meeting

The Annual Council Meeting usually held each October, to which members of the NSPCC Council and other guests are invited, covers:

  • Voting on any Branch motions
  • The election or re-election of the Treasurer and Trustees
  • The appointment of the auditors
  • The receipt of the Annual Report and Accounts
