The role of the CRC Trustees is to lead the charity and make sure that it is run properly. They are responsible for making sure that it is doing what it was set up to do. Importantly, the Trustees ensure that the funds of the charity are used wisely and that all of the statutory obligations of the CRC are complied with.
All the Trustees work on a pro-bono basis, donating their time and expertise on voluntarily, outside their normal everyday jobs. This ensures that as much of our raised funds go directly to support research and researchers – 96.6% to be precise!
