Our Trustees are responsible and passionate for looking after the best interests of LCDP and the valuable services the charity offers and delivers, meeting the needs of local individuals, (children, young people, families and adults) of all ages.
LCDP Trustees are the people who lead our charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives, making a difference to our local community.
LCDP Trustees use their professional and personal skills and experience to support the charity, helping LCDP achieve its aims.
What do we do...
Our Trustees have overall control of the charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do.
Trustees, staff and volunteers work collaboratively to support and offer local community services.
As Trustees for LCDP they must:
always act in the best interests of the charity – they must not let our personal interests, views or prejudices affect their conduct as a trustee
act reasonably and responsibly in all matters relating to our charity – act with as much care as if they were dealing with our own affairs, taking advice if LCDP need it
only use our charity’s income and property for the purposes set out in its governing document
make decisions in line with good practice and the rules set by our charity’s governing document, including excluding any trustee who has a conflict of interest from discussions or decision-making on the matter.
