Heart of the City is operating in a very topical but rapidly-changing environment, and wants to seize the opportunities of companies' increasing focus on sustainability and climate change. The Board ensures that the charity is delivering on its charitable objectives and Trustees:

  • Work with fellow Board members to shape, drive and monitor the charity’s strategy
  • Act reasonably in decision-making and leadership of the organisation
  • Ensure the proper management and administration of the charity
  • Use any specific skills, knowledge or experience to help the Board of Trustees reach decisions by leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, or other issues in which the Trustee has special expertise
  • Support Heart of the City’s Chief Executive and promote the work of Heart of the City externally
  • Ensure that Heart of the City’s values are upheld in the delivery of its objectives

In addition, Trustees sometimes offer additional ad hoc support where possible. This includes sharing their views on responsible business in interviews for the charity's newsletter, blogs or webinars, and championing the organisation's work on social media and on their own biographical profiles. Furthermore, it is hoped that Trustees will introduce Heart of the City to potential SME members and corporate partners, and, if possible, host a meeting of the Board.
