Trustees and Directors of Citizens Advice Diss, Thetford & District (CADAT)
We are a charity and company limited by guarantee and as such are required to have a Trustee Board which deals with the governance of the office. It is important we select Trustees who have a broad range of skills which complement each other and that the Board works together as a team with staff and volunteers working in the office. It is also vital that they uphold the principles of Citizens Advice which are to provide a high quality, impartial and confidential service to those living in the community they serve and challenge any social injustices of which they become aware.
Board meetings are held at least four times each year. The Chief Officer advises the board and attends all board and committee meetings. At meetings one or two staff or volunteers may be invited to make a presentation to the Board to explain their work roles.
There are two sub committees and with Terms of Reference. These committees meet before a Trustee Board meeting when they report on their recent work and share their plans for the future. These committees are:-
- People Committee
- Finance & Risk and Fundraising Committee
- We then meet quarterly at Board.
