The Board meet between six and eight times a year with the occasional need for training sessions outside the normal schedule.

The present Board includes retired and working-age people with a range of work and life experiences. Some have prior knowledge of trusteeship whilst for others; YMCA Doncaster is their first experience of a governance role.

Important Note: The role of the Board is clearly to govern, not to manage or work directly with our resident clients.
