As an independent charity, we are governed by a board of trustees, who serve as volunteers giving their time and expertise freely. The board are ultimately responsible, legally and morally, for the strategic direction, financial and legalities with day-to-day control delegated to the Chief Executive.


The composition of the board is varied and brings together a group of people with different skill sets to further the delivery of the charities aims. The board meets 5 times a year and some of our Trustee’s regularly visit the organisation on a weekly basis.

Tom joined Citizens Advice Bedford as a Trustee in 2016. He had previously worked as a GP in Bedford for 29 years. In this role he saw the whole cross section of the community and became aware of the different challenges that can occur for any of us. He also had patients who had been helped by CAB.

He is now glad to be able to put his knowledge of the Bedford community to use in helping support the organisation. He's also Chairman of the Bedford Daycare Hospice and away from the CAB he is a husband, father, gardener, golfer and skier.
