Notice on behalf of the Wolseley Trust Board of Directors

On behalf of the Wolseley Trust Board of Directors;

In 2015 an internal investigation took place at the Trust that was instigated by the new Chief Executive who had concerns regarding historic financial matters. The findings that were revealed necessitated the Trust seeking legal counsel and being then advised to make a formal complaint to the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.

As a result of that police inquiry the Trust is aware that the Crown Prosecution Service has decided to commence a criminal prosecution against a number of individuals.

The Chief Executive and the Board of Directors have cooperated fully with the police in their investigation. This inquiry has now progressed to a prosecution phase and the Trust will continue to support the police in any action they choose to take in this matter.

The Trust wishes to reassure all its partners, service users and staff that it will be very much business as usual as it continues to work to assist local people with the economic and community regeneration of our inner-city area of Plymouth.
