Our trustees are a body of volunteers who hold the full financial and legal responsibility for everything Sight Scotland and Sight Scotland Veterans deliver.
They are required to ensure that everything done by the two charities is solely and genuinely in pursuits of their goals. This includes maintaining a high standard of corporate governance, overseeing all we do, and ensuring we spend your money wisely.
Our trustees bring a wide range of knowledge, expertise and experience to the organisation and approve our strategic plans, annual budgets and annual accounts.
