Our people

CLT is governed by a board of Trustees and managed by a team of passionate local professionals.

Meet our Trustees

CLT, under the governance structure voted for in a referendum in November 2016, includes three appointed and five publicly elected trustees that make up the Board. The Board meets 10 times a year to make the decisions regarding the grants distributed.

The appointed trustees have been brought on board to enhance the composition of CLT, ensuring it can recruit for the specialist skills and knowledge it needs, while sustaining majority elected community representation.
