The Role of the Trustees
The Trustees are all volunteers who are appointed in accordance with UK charity law and are legally responsible for ensuring that the SRP BF is carrying out the purposes for which it is set up.
This means this involves them:
- understanding the SRP BF’s purposes as set out in its governing document
- planning what the fund will do, and what they want it to achieve
- complying with the SRP BF governing document (its Constitution) and the law
In addition, the Trustees are the people who manage the funds, so they are responsible for:
- enabling potential beneficiaries to apply for financial support when they are in need
- scrutinising applications
- deciding if applicants qualify for support from the fund, and
- making payments from the fund to qualifying applicants
The Trustees of the SRP BF are listed below. They all have time limited periods in the role, and the periods are different to ensure that there is continuity.
The founding Trustees are:
- Chris Englefield PhD CRadP FSRP FSyI (Chair)
- Simon Clarke BSc LLM (Secretary)
- Peter Bryant MSc CPhys CRadP MSRP (Treasurer)
- Rebecca Anderson MSRP (Trustee)
- Bob Kerr CRadP FSRP MRSC (Trustee)
