The Way the Trusts Operate

The Trustees of each charity meet formally three times a year.  The two Trusts have established two joint subcommittees which perform more detailed work for each trust as follows:


Grant Making Committee

Bishop of Bedford (Chair)

Cressida Rayner

Cynthia Gresham

This committee manages the application process, scrutinises all applications and makes recommendations to the full board of Trustees.


Finance Committee

Edmund Wood (Chair)

Jeremy Newsum

Caroline Bewes

This committee oversees the finances of the Trusts including treasury, investment management and annual reporting.
