Board members undertake strategic planning for the organisation, overseeing finances and fundraising; policies and human resources, and are responsible for ensuring that the organisation is meeting its aims.
The Board meets as a group on a bi -monthly basis, with meetings generally in the evenings starting around 6:30 and lasting for 2 hours.

It is important, though, that the members of the board take all reasonable steps to ensure physical and mental safety of staff and volunteers, that they take reasonable steps to secure the financial health of the organisation, and that they take reasonable steps to prevent harm and ensure that we are compliant with the law.
