Staff & Trustees
Our Trustee Board , all volunteers, oversees the governance of the charity. We are fortunate to have a group of very pro-active trustees who bring a wealth of expertise . They are required to make balanced and adequately informed decisions, thinking about the long term as well as the short term. They are the ones who are legally responsible for the charity, in particular they make sure that the charity’s assets are only used to support or carry out its purposes. They are a driving force behind the work we do as a centre and our future plans.
