Register of business and pecuniary interests

Directors and senior staff are asked to fill in a ‘related parties’ form to declare any connection with any business who has provided services for the Trust annually as part of the audit process to support the annual report / financial statements.
A summary of the directors’ relevant business interests is in the link. The full register can be viewed at the First Federation office.
