Governance and Accounts

Our Governance

We are a registered charity and our latest accounts and details on our annual general meeting are available.

Living Streets is a registered charity and a registered company limited by guarantee, governed by a board of between eight and 16 Trustees, who also act as Directors of the limited company. Trustees can serve no more than two consecutive three year terms on the Board. Prospective board members are nominated by the board and elected by members of the organisation at the annual general meeting (AGM).

The board meets four times a year, and is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation. They ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulation, as well as the continuing financial health of the organisation. They also hold the Chief Executive to account for the efficient and effective running of the organisation.

A sub-committee of the board, the Executive Committee, also meets four times a year and has delegated authority. The Executive Committee focuses on finance and operational matters, reporting back to the board on its work at each meeting. The Chief Executive and Company Secretary (Director of Finance and Administration) attend all board and Executive Committee meetings.

The Chief Executive is responsible for the day to day management of Living Streets, and any subsidiary bodies. A Senior Management Team ensures the smooth running of the organisation.

Our Members, individuals who have made a commitment to play a part in the governance of the organisation, attend the AGM. To find out more about becoming a member of the organisation (distinct from donors or supporters) please email [email protected]
