Trustees are appointed to oversee an organisation. Like the directors of a company they ensure that things are running smoothly and that the organisation is being well managed. Unlike the directors of a company they don't get paid and are like so many of the other volunteers who support SIFA Fireside.
Our trustees come from different backgrounds, some from business, some from finance and some with legal knowledge. We also have people who have worked in areas that help them understand the difficulties facing our clients or have experienced some of those difficulties themselves. The mix of experience and skills throughout the board helps us to monitor the organisation and be clear that it is working effectively.
