The Trust has “Members” who are best viewed as guardians of the constitution, changing the Articles if necessary and ensuring the charitable object is fulfilled. The Members have overall nominal responsibility for The Academy Trust, but they exercise their functions through the trust board. Each Member guarantees to contribute £10 if the Trust were to become insolvent and be wound up - that is the “guarantee” implied by the term “company limited by guarantee”. The Trust will ordinarily have at least five Members.
