The Gordon Moody Board is comprised of eight trustees who volunteer their expertise in a number of areas to enhance the charity and enable the delivery of its purpose.
The trustees ensure the quality of services, reputational relationships and financial processes which deliver the purpose of Gordon Moody.
The main board that meets quarterly, sets the strategic direction for the charity and through regular reporting holds the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Leadership Team to account for implementation and delivery of the strategy. The main board also regularly reviews the main risks, key performance indicators and overall performance of the charity.
To support the main board Gordon Moody has three subcommittees, a remuneration and nomination committee, a finance and IT committee and a clinical governance committee.
