Decision Making in Stay

The Board of Stay

Stay is run by a Board of Trustees made up of a maximum 74% direct appointees, with the remaining 26% appointed by Telford Christian Council. This arrangement provides Stay with the necessary business independence whilst retaining the Christian ethos on which we were founded.

  • Approving the Stay Business Plan and monitor performance against the Plan.
  • Authorising budgets.

The Board has delegated to a Finance and Audit Committee the general oversight of financial matters including:

  • Recommending budgets to the Board for approval.
  • Reviewing management accounts, and reporting to the Board by exception.
  • Considering the annual accounts and making recommendations to the Board.
  • Making recommendations to the Board in respect of any changes in disposition of capital.
