How we are governed

Stroud Court is overseen by a charitable trust, Stroud Court Community Trust, a company limited by guarantee number 2733012 and a registered charity number 1029448.

We are registered as a residential care home for up to 39 adults with autistic spectrum disorders. Responsibility for Stroud Court falls to our executive director who is instructed by our board of trustees and our senior management team.

Stroud Court Community Trust is governed by our board of trustees according to the Trust’s Memorandum of Association.

All trustees are committed to upholding our values and ensuring our residents receive the highest levels of care and support. Some trustees are parents or siblings of residents while others are recruited for their professional experience and expertise.

The board of trustees has between three and nine members and is led by the chair of the board of trustees, who also directly oversees our executive director.

Members of the board of trustees are elected at the annual general meeting from members of the Stroud Court Community Trust. They are eligible to serve on the board for three years before retiring.

Our board is aided by our patrons, all of whom give their time and expertise to help us make Stroud Court a supportive and nurturing home for our residents.
