Our Trustees

Arthritis Research UK is a charity registered in England and Wales and in Scotland. We are governed by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for setting the charity’s strategic direction and for the general management of the administration of the charity.

Our Board, led by Chair, Rodger McMillan, is composed of a mix of both scientific experts and lay members each bringing a unique set of skills and experiences. The Board of Trustees meets four times a year but our Trustees also participate in other events throughout the year and serve on various committees involved in specific areas of the charity's activities.

Our Trustees do not get paid for the work they do for the charity.
