Become a Trustee Board of Trustee Directors As a registered charity, Acorn Early Years Foundation is governed by a board of trustees. The role of the board is primarily strategic, and monitors the financial performance, management and quality assurance processes within the organisation. The board meets at least four times a year, but receives monthly updates and management information, and email correspondence and conference calls take place to deal with any urgent issues between meetings. Each trustee serves a three year term, which may be renewed by mutual agreement. If you would like more information on what is involved in being a trustee of a charity, please refer to this charity commission guidance. Trustee Recruitment Acorn is always on the lookout for skilled, experienced and enthusiastic new trustees to join our team, bringing even more knowledge and experience to the board in order to continually improve the running of the organisation.
