Our Council of elected members is an integral part of RSPCA daily life.
Our Council members are the charity’s trustees and as volunteers do not profit from their role. They are responsible for providing leadership and direction, and also ensure the effective use of our resources to maximise the benefit to animal welfare.
Council members are elected by our members each year for a three-year period, and the results are announced at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the summer.
