Governance

We are governed by a Board of voluntary Directors and Board Members. None of our Directors or Board members receives payment of any kind for their service to the Mid-Western Cancer Foundation. To ensure transparency, at every Board meeting, the Directors and Board Members present are asked to declare any conflict of interest with the Mid-Western Cancer Foundation.

In addition, the charity is compliant with relevant obligations under the Companies Act 2014 and the Charities Act 2009. The Foundation prepares an annual report and financial statements in full compliance with the Charities SORP FRS102.
