Board meetings

  • Public

Our board meets regularly to discuss our work.

We are committed to openness and transparency. The board conducts as much of its business as possible in a session that the public are welcome to attend and observe. To protect confidentiality some business is discussed in a private session.

The agenda and meeting papers are available on this page a few days before each meeting.

You can also watch recordings of the meetings on this website.
