Our Board of Trustees


Our Board of Trustees are responsible for our leadership and governance.  They are all volunteers, and take on the responsibility for overseeing the operation of our service.

The board of trustees is collectively responsible for the governance of the bureau, including setting an overall vision. This can broadly be defined as:

  • holding staff accountable, and being ultimately accountable for the activities of Citizens Advice Wolverhampton
  • providing leadership to all in the organisation
  • developing policy
  • strategic management.

Each trustee is accountable for all the decisions taken by the trustee board, including those taken if they are absent. Once the trustee board has reached a decision, all individual members of the board are bound by it and must support it.
