As a not-for-profit organisation, NBLT is run by a Management Board, made up of a group of Trustees.
As a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity, NBLT is run by The Management Board, which is the governing body ultimately responsible for the actions and activity which the charitable organisation does. The Management Board is responsible for supervising the General Manager and ensuring that NBLT is being well managed and operating within agreed policies, the law and its budget.
