Crohn’s & Colitis UK staff

As an organisation with important responsibilities towards our beneficiaries, donors, supporters, and the public, we recognise the importance of accountability and transparency in all aspects of our work.

Our people

All charities, not just Crohn’s & Colitis UK, need to ensure maximum value for money in everything they do. This includes how we pay staff and how we balance this with being able to deliver unprecedented change to the lives of everyone affected by Crohn's or Colitis.

Whether it is delivering a direct service to our beneficiaries or managing the effective and efficient running of the organisation, our staff team plays a critical role in helping the charity to develop, grow, and deliver ever more for our beneficiaries.

Board of Trustees

Our Board of Trustees is responsible at a governance level for the general control and management of the administration of the Charity. They provide us with leadership and provide strategic direction  to achieve our vision. Our Trustees have a wide range of valuable experiences and skills, and many of them have a personal connection to Crohn's and Colitis.

They operate according to our Articles of Association.

How pay is governed

Our board of trustees (all volunteers) are responsible for defining the charity’s pay policy and deciding on the salaries of the chief executive and their leadership team.  We are committed to ensuring a balance between:

  • Paying our staff who work for us fairly so that we attract and retain the very best people with the right experience, talent and leadership qualities
  • Careful management of our charity funds.

This clear policy ensures the greatest effectiveness in delivering our charitable objectives and in meeting the needs of our beneficiaries.
