Governance

The board of trustees of the charity are elected Directors and appointed Non-Executive Directors.

Non-Executive Directors are elected for a term of office of up to 2 years from date of the previous Annual General Meeting and oversee general guidance of the Charity.

The Directors (Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) are elected annually at the AGM or an EGM and are responsible for the management, vision and day-to-day running of the charity.

Trustees provide an essential and legal requirement for all charitable organisations. Trustees take overall responsibility for the organisation, ensuring that the charity delivers its charitable aims and works within both recommended and legal guidelines. Further information on the requirements and responsibilities of a Trustee can be found on the Charity Commission for England & Wales website – charitycommission.gov.uk/trustees-staff-and-volunteers/trustee-role/becoming-a-trustee

Become a Trustee

Oxford Pride looks for strong, dynamic, driven individuals to help the Charity move forward; people who have a good understanding of what the role of a Trustee entails and its importance to the governance of the organisation. Ideally, a professional or business background in the voluntary, public or private sector, and organisational and management experience. A background in fundraising, finance, corporate sponsorship, working with community groups or young people would be particularly useful.

Trustees meet on a 2-monthly basis between 18:00 and 18:45 on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and Management Committee meetings every 3rd Tuesday of the month between 19:00 and 21:00. We ask that prospective Trustees are able to commit themselves to at least 5 of the 7 Board of Trustees meetings and 10 of the 12 Management Committee meetings. For further information please contact the Chair to request an application pack.
