We are setting up a Board of Governors, made up of trusted community representatives, to oversee the centre. An Interim Board has been set up initially to establish the permanent Board of Governors. The interim board includes local faith and community leaders. An open and public selection process will then be held to form the permanent board.The Curve Team will be jointly accountable to the Board of Governors and to the Council. The role of the Board of Governors will be to hold the Curve team to account on delivering for the community, in line with its priorities.
These priorities will be set by a Residents’ Steering Group, which the Curve is in the process of establishing. This group will set the priorities for The Curve by telling them what should be on offer.
The Curve Board of Governors will ensure that the community leads what the Curve delivers. The interim Governors are
- Abderrahman Elguerbouzi
- Abdurahman Sayed
- Fatai (‘Abdul’) Towolawi
- Fatima Elguenuni (Chair)
- Revd Dr Michael Long
At the first meeting of the Board on Thursday 26 January, Fatima Elguenuni was elected Chair. Fatima works for the NHS and is the mother of a former Grenfell Tower resident. She brings experience of chairing three other boards.
