Class 3: How we make decisions

The Board sets the strategic direction for the Commission and ensures efficient, effective, and accountable governance. It meets seven times a year and the minutes are published on our website. 

Commission Board Meetings

Approved minutes of Board Meetings can be accessed from our website, as can dates for future meetings.

Standing Orders, Reservation of Powers, and Scheme of Delegation

The Board reserves certain decisions to itself and delegates other decisions to its Committees and executive directors. The full reservation of powers and scheme of delegation is set out in Appendix A of our "Standing Orders".

Public consultation and engagement strategies

We have an Advisory Group of key stakeholders which is established as a committee of the Commission. Its remit and membership is set out in Appendix C of the Standing Orders, a link to which can be found in the paragraph above.
This section gives you details of how we inform and engage with service users and key stakeholders, and also provides details of our Engagement and Participation Strategy with stakeholders, including people who use services, users, carers, professionals and organisations.
