Board of Governance

InMAT is governed by a trust board made up of trustees who are also known as non-executive directors.  Trustees are appointed by the Members of the trust or are co-opted onto the board.  They have a wide variety of skills and experience and work to ensure children are always put first, in line with our vision and values.  You can find out more about the work of the trust board and the trustees here For more information please visit  (Governance Documents).
