Forum for the Future is a registered charity, and our trustees are legally responsible for all of our activities. Like many other charities, we are also incorporated as a registered limited company.
The governing body of the Forum is the Board of Trustees, which meets four times a year. The trustees are responsible for ensuring that the Forum abides by its charitable aims, works within the law, and delivers its mission effectively. They oversee the policies and objectives of the Forum and ensure that the work of the organisation is monitored and evaluated effectively. Two of the trustees are paid for their work as employees of the Forum, with the consent of the Charity Commission.
The Board is led by the Chair of Trustees, and one trustee is elected as Deputy Chair and Honorary Treasurer.
The AAC makes recommendations to the Board to ensure that the finances, assets and risks of the Forum are effectively managed. It keeps under review the adequacy of the Forum's internal control, and considers and evaluates the work of the external auditors. The AAC is made up of the Honorary Treasurer, one other member of the Board, and one independent member. It meets four times a year.
