This is how Belinda, Shines Business Manager describes Shines board of trustees…They sit high enough to guide and ensure governance, but sit low enough to assist and mentor without interfering.
When we asked our Business Manager what our board of trustees meant to her this is what she said:
“I sit in the board meetings and I am blown away by the passion all trustees have for mental health and how Shine can and does play its part in the transformation of improving mental health within Lincolnshire. The trustees bring different perspectives from their current and previous careers but ultimately have one objective… to be a part of improving people’s mental health and their access to services. The meetings are structured but relaxed, the trustees are there for governance, strategic planning and guidance but do not get involved operationally, that’s why we have a CEO”.
We are looking for new trustees to sit on our board, at the moment it’s a couple of hours a month, these could be reduced to bi-monthly or even quarterly.
