The Forum operates throughout England and Wales and is multi-faith. It has a Board of Trustees who are responsible for due governance and probity, and who are accountable to the Charity Commissioners in law and to the Department of Health for the application of the three-year grant made in April 2009 under the S.64 grant scheme. Following the end of this grant at 31st March 2012, the Trustees remain accountable to the Charity Commissioners.
It also has a Board of Trustees which meets at least twice a year to plan the activity of the Forum, make arrangements for the AGM and develop the work and role of the Forum. For a full list of the Trustees please follow this link
