The Board of Trustees, the council and the executive board
There are currently 17 Trustees. The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting and monitoring the NSPCC’s strategic objectives.
The Trustees meet between seven and nine times a year. The Board delegates some areas of its work to sub-committees. These are Audit and Risk, Finance, Development, Policy, Fundraising, Nominations and Governance, Remuneration and the Divisional Trustees.
Five Trustees are Divisional Trustees, providing the link with supporters and volunteers across the country.
The Executive Board (Chief Executive Andrew Flanagan and the Directors) works closely with the Board and carries out the day-to-day running of the organisation.
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 accounts and report
