Who We Are

Charity ComissionCharitable Status

We have been a registered with the Charity Commission since 2013 (Registered Charity No. 1156194) and operate using their guidance and standard constitution. We submit annual accounts and reports to them as required.

Our three overall charitable aims/objects are:



BHVC TrusteesThe Charity is governed by Trustees who set the strategy for the Centre, run it on a day-to-day basis, coordinate volunteer recruitment and training and ensure the effective use of resources. 

The last AGM took place on the 2nd March 2021 and confirmed the following 6 Trustees. The Trustees then elect the officer posts:


Liz Redfern (Chair) - re- elected 2019 for 3 years – 2022. Elected as Chair in December 2020.


Judi Thomas (Vice Chair and Secretary) – re- elected 2019 for 3 years - 2022

The Trustees meet regularly with agendas and minutes. Volunteers are invited to join the meeting by request and agendas are circulated beforehand.  Following each meeting a Newsletter is sent to all volunteers to update them on decisions from the meeting and other relevant information, to keep them informed.

Since 2016 Trustees have been elected by the volunteer group. Our election process established in 2015/16 introduced the principle of 3 Trustees standing down in each of the first two years to provide continuity at the same time as the opportunity to introduce new Trustees.  The normal term of office for the elected trustees will be 3 years and they will then be eligible to stand again.
