Trustees

The Diocese of Portsmouth is a Registered Charity with the Charity Commission of England and Wales. As such, we are required by law to have a group of Trustees who support the Bishop by overseeing the charitable work of the diocese. Alongside the members of the Bishop’s Council, the trustees are chosen for their expertise in various fields and their dedication to the Catholic Mission of the Diocese.
