The Members of the Trust are the guardians of the governance of the Trust and as such have a different status to Trustees. Originally, they will have been the signatories to the Memorandum of Association and will have agreed the Trust’s first Articles of Association (the legal document which outlines the governance structure and how the Trust will operate). The Members appoint Trustees to ensure that the Trust’s charitable object is carried out.
