There are 15 public Governors who each represent a geographical area in Norfolk or Waveney. There are also six staff Governors who each represent a staff group, plus four appointed Governors from local organisations The University of East Anglia, NHS Norfolk, Norfolk County Council and a representative from the District Councils.
Membership of the Trust is free and open to anyone aged over 12 years old living in Norfolk or Waveney.
