Glamis & Area Community Trust is a registered Scottish charity. Its charitable purposes are, by using funds acquired or received by the Trust, to support local community projects and initiatives within the boundaries of Glamis Community Council, which advance:
1. citizenship and community benefit.
2. the arts, culture, heritage, or science.
3. the provision of recreational facilities, or the organisation of recreational activities, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities or activities are primarily intended; and
4. environmental protection or improvement.
The Trust has no separate membership – its Trustees are its only members. The Board comprises up to five Trustees. An Elected Trustee must live within ten miles of Glamis village (per Clause 8.2.2 of the constitution). Each Trustee serves for a fixed term of five years (although may resign earlier) and is eligible for re-election for one further five year term.
No payment is made to Trustees, although by prior agreement by the Board out-of-pocket expenses can be reimbursed.
Trustees have to be mindful of any potential or real conflict of interests. If any arise, or be likely to arise, they must declare them to the other Trustees and leave any part of a Board meeting or Members’ meeting at which their conflict would or could be a material factor. It is intended that Trustees will meet at least three times each year to decide on grant applications. Other Board meetings will be arranged as necessary.
