Trustees

We are governed by a board of trustees, who are ultimately responsible for the management and conduct of the charity. Our trustees set our strategic direction, enabling us to work towards our vision.

Our constitution requires that 75% of our trustees and members are disabled people or carers. This is because we believe that our work should be led and influenced by people with lived experience of disability. 

For further information about our Trustee roles please read our Be a Trustee Information Pack.  

If you are interested in becoming a trustee please email info@independentlives.org for an application form or phone us on 01903 219482.
