Date of External Board/Outside Body Meeting Attended




Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:

Cutbush and Corrall provide safe accommodation for older people who have a connection with the Borough and would otherwise find it difficult to satisfy their housing needs.

The charity is governed by a board of voluntary members with the day to day management of its affairs delegated to the staff of chief officer and scheme managers.

The board consists of eight trustees with two sub-committees. Buildings Committee oversees the maintenance, and the Selection Committee interviews potential residents and recommends them to the board for approval. The Selection Committee consists of two members I am a member of the Selection Committee.




I have attended all board meetings, as well as sub-committees as arranged.

We are committed to exploring opportunities for growth, with a view to build more alms houses to complement the present mix of historic and modern properties in Maidstone.

Any changes or developments are reported in the monthly newsletters to residents.
