Trust Council provides the charity’s governing body and comprises elected individual members, co-opted society representatives and Governor-in-Council appointees.

As a statutory body, the governance structure and processes of the charity are prescribed in the St Helena National Trust Ordinance of 2001 (amended by Ordinances 2 of 2008, 14 of 2017, 3 of 2019) and attendant Regulations (amended January 2020). All Trust Council members also sign up to a suite of governing principles and are required to make formal declarations of interest.

The Director is accountable for the day-to-day management of the Trust with exceptions set out in a schedule of matters reserved for Trust Council.
