Members

The Inspiration Trust is a not-for-profit charity. We are required to have members as a result of the Companies Act 2006.

The members agree the Trust’s Articles of Association, which include the trust’s charitable objects and describes how the Trust will be governed. While members hold the Trust Board to account for the effective governance of the Trust, the members themselves have a minimal role in the actual running of the Trust. It is the Trust Board, not the members, who are the organisation’s key decision makers. One of the members’ key responsibilities is the appointment of Trustees.
