Latest News – Good Governance statement by the Board – September 2017

Trust Directors highlight the need for Good Governance to keep future grant funding decisions local.  

‘Doing things right – for all our benefit!’

Read the statement in full here   Good Governance  Statement 

SFCT is managed by a volunteer group of Directors. Directors are voted into position by all the members of the company and they are responsible, not only for directing the organisation’s activities, but also for ensuring that it is managed with best practice and that it upholds all its statutory responsibilities such as producing annual accounts etc.  Full details of exactly how Directors are voted on to the Board and what are their responsibilities are covered in detail in our Articles of Association.

All Directors of SFCT will act to support the organisation’s vision statement which is: 

“We will act to enhance the quality of lives of people by engaging with the issues that matter to the community and by supporting people, at a sustainable level (i.e. with finance, personal time, specific knowledge etc.), to help people make things happen.”

Within our Trust activities, we will:

  • Act with integrity……..do what we say we are going to do
  • Focus on ‘outcomes’ not just ‘outputs’
  • Ensure rigorous financial control
  • Trust each other to work to the best of our abilities
  • Allow criticism but ensure it is constructive

Any member of the community can put themselves forward to become a Director and we have made it easy for new members to come on board by producing a detailed Directors’ Training Scheme, a summary of which you can see here  Directors’ Induction and Training Scheme .
