How we're run

We are extremely grateful for the help of our incredible community of over 13,000 members, 1,000 enthusiastic volunteers, and all of our partners, funders and supporters. Without their support, a lot of our work would not be possible.

Our Trustees are a group of volunteers who hold the financial and legal responsibility for everything the Trust does.
