Trustees and Staff

Our Trustees

Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of Notts County Foundation and The Portland Centre. They meet regularly to discuss, decide and review our strategies and policies and receive reports and updates from senior managers. Our trustees work for Notts County Foundation and The Portland Centre voluntarily to make sure we’re doing all we can to reach and improve the lives of the local community.
