Board of Trustee Directors

The Retreat is a registered charity (No. 1089826) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (No. 4325622). Trustee Directors are both Directors of the company and Trustees of the charity.

As a charitable company, The Retreat is governed by a Board of up to eleven volunteer Trustee Directors. Half of our Trustee Directors are nominated by The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and the remaining Trustee Directors are recruited externally in order to secure specific expertise.

Trustee Directors' meetings are held at The Retreat in York and Trustee Directors are joined by the Leadership Team to review the operations, governance, finance, strategy and outcomes of the Charity.
