Governance to support our mission

Trustees are responsible for the good governance of Jigsaw4u. Jigsaw4u’s Board of Trustees hold formal meetings every 2-months and engage in discussions and specific projects at other times as needed.

The Charity Commission sets out six key duties for charity Trustees:

1. Ensure your charity is carrying out its purpose for the public benefit
2. Comply with your charity’s governing document and the law
3. Act in the interests of their charity and its beneficiaries

4. Manage your charity’s resources responsibly
5. Act with reasonable care and skill
6. Ensure your charity is accountable

Jigsaw4u’s Board of Trustees is fully committed to carrying out these duties.
The Board sets the long-term vision and direction for Jigsaw4u and promotes and protects its reputation and values. It does this by determining, monitoring and regularly reviewing Jigsaw4u’s strategy, operations and budget and by agreeing the key policies and procedures to guide its work.
The Board works collectively as a team, in close partnership with Jigsaw4u’s Chief Executive Officer (who also attends Board meetings) and through active staff engagement so decisions are not taken in a vacuum.

The three key priorities for Jigsaw4u's Trustees are:

Safeguarding

Ensuring financial sustainability for the charity

Acting with high ethical standards – for themselves and staff
