The Trustees’ role
The Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity; they help raise our eyes to the bigger picture, ensure we remain true to our values, keep in sight the current and future financial situation, and above all, as a Christian charity, keep us praying. We are so grateful for their commitment and passion.
