Chequers is run and managed by an independent trust and is maintained by an endowment administered by the Trustees. The Trust also receives an annual grant-in-aid from public funds towards maintenance and staffing costs. Details of the grant-in-aid are published after the end of the financial year and accounted for in the Cabinet Office Annual Report and Accounts, which can be accessed on the GOV.UK website.
