Governance and Management
The BEARR Trust is an English-registered charity constituted by a Declaration of Trust dated 27 April 1992 and supplemental Deed of Variation dated 14 December 1995. Based in London, BEARR is managed by a board of trustees with a wide range of relevant expertise. Trustees are appointed for three years, renewable by mutual agreement.
BEARR’s trustees aim to run BEARR with as low overheads as possible. The trustees volunteer significant amounts of management time, in addition to their trustee duties, while other volunteers contribute translating, interpreting, event management and finance skills.
The trustees and volunteers are supported by part-time paid consultants: our Information Officer Sophie Vandyck, Small Grants Officer Anna Lukanina, and Moscow-based Information Officer Igor Timoshin.
