Alzheimer’s Research UK is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. We are governed by a Board of Trustees, the Charity’s board of directors.
The Board’s role is to set the Charity’s strategic direction. The Board monitors the delivery of the Charity’s objectives, upholds its values and governance, and advises and supports the Chief Executive, who leads the Senior Management Team towards achieving the Charity’s vision and purpose.
The Board of Council of Trustees is led by the Chairman, David Mayhew CBE.
New Trustees are appointed, either through recommendation or a recruitment campaign, based on experience and key skills needed, and after an interview with the existing Trustees. The initial appointment is until our Annual General Meeting and thereafter a Trustee is eligible for reappointment for three years, followed by a further term of three years
Sub-committees of Trustees and staff report on Audit and Risk, Finance and Investment, HR and Remuneration and Legacy.
