People with a Purpose
Good governance is critical to the success of any business. Our grandparents, and great-parents, who started the trusts were renowned for their sharp business acumen and they ran those first farms with the express intention of making them hum. They were acutely aware that the more they could earn, the more they could give to their community.
Those of us entrusted to oversee Trinity Lands today are driven by the same desire to perform to the best of our abilities, so we can do the most good possible.
We run a very lean operation and rely heavily on extensive volunteer input from people with renowned agriculture nous. In recent years, we’ve created a small paid executive to ensure we have appropriate governance for an organisation of our size.
The executive develop the strategy, and then our board challenges and supports that strategy, and monitors performance and compliance.
The directors of Trinity Lands are appointed by the shareholding trusts – Lichfield Lands, Longview Trust and Hillview Trust. They have a wide range of business experience and a strong connection to the charitable values of Trinity Lands.
