As an independent charity, the Union has a Trustee Board to oversee all of its activities, to make sure it complies with the law and that it remains financially stable and sustainable.
The Trustee Board is composed of our eight elected Exec Team members (our Sabbatical Officers), three student trustees, and three external members who are appointed for their skills and experience. Click here to see profiles of our current Trustees.
The Trustee Board is the overall governing body of the Students' Union and is responsible for the Union's long-term health and sustainability. It monitors the performance of the Union's employees and finances.
The Trustees normally do not get involved in student-facing or day-to-day issues, but the Board has the right to block anything on the grounds that it is financially unviable, or poses a legal threat or other large risk to the Union.
