How we are Governed
Designability is registered as a charity and company limited by guarantee under its former name, Bath Institute of Medical Engineering.
Our work is overseen by four main bodies:
Our Council of Trustees
Our unpaid Council of Trustees meets at least three times per year and is responsible for ensuring that we meet our charitable objectives and are run according to our Articles of Association and Memorandum of Association.
Our unpaid Officers support and advise our Council. Our Honorary Secretary is appointed by the University of Bath and our Honorary Assistant Secretary is appointed by our Council.
Our Projects and Research Governance Committee
Our Trustees appoint an unpaid Projects and Research Governance Committee to advise on our research and development programme.
Our Oversight and Scrutiny Committee
Our Trustees appoint an unpaid Oversight and Scrutiny Committee to review income and expenditure against budget.
