As a charity, BCOP is governed by a Board of Trustees. The key responsibility of each Trustee, along with the others, is to hold the charity in trust for current and future beneficiaries.

The Board of Trustees approve the vision, mission statement and ethos/values of the organisation.  They are responsible for setting high level strategic objectives ensuring the financial viability and regulatory compliance of the charity, for approving business plans and seeking assurance that agreed objectives are being met by the Executive through monitoring reports of operational performance.
