The Board and our Governance

This statement and our day-to-day business practice demonstrates our internal and external commitment to all requirements.

We commit to

  1. Comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
  2. Consider the social and environmental impact of all of our decisions
  3. Robust and responsible financial strategic planning and operations
  4. Have appropriate controls and risk management procedures
  5. Prioritise EDI and challenge ourselves to be an active ally to marginalised and under represented people and communities
  6. Learn and Improve

Think Active is led by its Board of Trustees. The Board sets Think Active’s strategic direction, and is the organisation’s ultimate decision-making body.

The Board is made up of between seven and twelve members, who serve on a voluntary basis, receiving no remuneration (other than reasonable expenses). These Board members bring a wide-ranging set of skills, experience and knowledge, ensuring that the organisation is governed effectively.  All Board members complete a Declaration of Good Character and sign up to a Trustee Code of Conduct
