Our People

Our Trustees

The role of trustees is vital – advising, scrutinising, and steering the work of the charity, ensuring that good governance is adhered to, and overseeing legal and financial affairs.

Trustees enrich the work of the Sherwood Forest Trust, bringing valuable skills and viewpoints from different walks of life.

We currently have three vacancies on our Board. Could you be a Trustee? If you have experience and skills that you feel could benefit the Trust, plus time to attend meetings and a willingness to take on responsibility, please contact Dr Patrick Candler for an informal discussion.
