Our Trustees

Trustees are volunteers who manage the development of Sutton Community Transport (SCT).  It is a challenging role that makes use of their life experiences—particularly their work skills. There is no pay – but the reward is to see a charity develop into a vital part of the local community. The Management Board meet bi-monthly, usually in the morning.   If you think that you can contribute to the success of SCT, or you know someone who could – do talk to us.
