Its full members are eligible to vote at annual general meetings, to consider the annual report of the Board of Management and to elect board members. Full members receive no dividend, nor do they benefit from any accumulated Trust funds.

The fund has been supplemented by private donations, annual subscriptions from the Trust’s Associate Members and grants from local authorities and public bodies. Sometimes, loans have been raised for repair, conservation or conversion work and repaid upon the sale of the restored premises.
