Find out how Sense Scotland is managed and supported by key groups.
Our governing body is known as the Board of Trustees (the Board) and comprises of between 10 and 15 trustees at any one time meeting a minimum of four times each year. The Board has established four sub-committees as follows:
Roy Cox, OBE – Chair
Angela Clements – Vice Chair and member of Finance Committee
Rodney Clark – Trustee
Suzanne Clark – Trustee and member of Audit and Risk Committee
Neil Farquharson – Honorary Trustee
Colin Hetherington – Trustee and member of Audit and Risk Committee
John Richards, MBE – Trustee and member of Audit and Risk Committee
Martha Shortreed – Trustee
Gary Simpson – Trustee and member of Nominations Committee
Elspeth Talbot – Trustee
Trustees are normally appointed for a four-year term. The Chief Executive and Directorate attend all Board meetings and are informed of decisions made by Trustees. Minutes from the Board meetings are circulated to Leadership Team members. All Leadership Team members meet as a minimum twice a year with Trustees.
In addition, two further groups influence and inform decision making at Sense Scotland:
The forum consists of Unite trade unions representations, staff representatives and senior management. The aim of the forum is to work together to ensure the success of the organisation and to tackle and solve problems and workplace challenges.
