The Board of Trustees are the guardians of the British Council’s purpose and are ultimately accountable for the organisation.

Currently chaired by Christopher Rodrigues, they hold the Executive Board responsible for the organisation’s performance, strategy and policy. The trustees meet six times a year and edited minutes of their meetings are available to the public.

There are five formal sub-committees to the Board: Audit and Finance (pdf 84kb), Risk (pdf 35kb), Remuneration (pdf 43kb) and Nominations (pdf 45kb) and Contracts (pdf 26kb). Protocols are in place to support the effective and consistent operation of the five sub-committees.We also publish the register of interests of the Board of Trustees.
