How we are governed

We received our Royal Charity status in 1949 and are governed by the RNIB Royal Charter and Bye-Laws:

RNIB Board of Trustees

The RNIB Board of Trustees is responsible for taking the major decisions that affect RNIB and its subsidiaries, including our Associate Charities.

Including the Honorary Officers, we have eight trustees, six of whom are blind or partially sighted.
