We are committed to continuously improving and developing in order to provide more and better services for older people. Anchor's board provides the leadership, direction and control necessary to guide the organisation.
Governance is entrusted to a board of non-executive trustee directors and an Executive Management Board, who meet formally four times a year. Additional board meetings are held if business decisions are required outside the normal meeting cycle.
The board shapes and develops Anchor's agenda for the future and defines the organisation's strategic priorities. It measures and evaluates the value and impact of our services and does not assess performance in purely financial terms.
The board is ultimately responsible for ensuring that Anchor has in place appropriate systems for internal control. It periodically reviews its own effectiveness as well as the effectiveness and performance of the organisation. It also reviews the competencies and contribution made by board members.
Anchor seeks to comply with the principles of the UK Corporate Governance Code insofar as it applies to the organisation.
