Wythenshawe Forum Trust
Wythenshawe Forum Trust Ltd was established in September 2002 to provide the strategic leadership for the Forum redevelopment project. The Trust is a company Limited by Guarantee and is governed by its Articles of Association.
In fact Wythenshawe Forum Trust has no shareholders. It is run by a board of twelve directors or trustees, all of whom are unpaid. Trustees are made up partly from representatives of our partner organisations and partly from Wythenshawe people active in the local community. All bring valuable experience to the Trust. A small, executive team made up of the Chief Executive, a Finance Officer and an administration assistant supports the board.
The Trust's initial role was to provide the strategic leadership for the £20 million Forum redevelopment project. To allow it to do this the Trust was granted a 25-year lease on the building by Manchester City Council. The Trust administers the site through a variety of contracts, agencies and tenancy agreements.
The long-term role of the Trust is to promote joint working between the various agencies providing services across the Forum. The Trust is funded from a variety of sources including a grant from Manchester City Council, rents and sales income.
Wythenshawe Forum Trust is supported in its objective by its partner organisations - The Manchester College, Manchester Airport plc, Manchester City Council, Manchester Primary Care Trust, Parkway Green Housing Trust and Willow Park Housing Trust. See links below.
