Meet our young directors

We take several steps to ensure there is meaningful participation of young people in our governance, starting with our Board of Directors.

Our Board of Directors includes at least two young people who bring to the Board the combination of skills, knowledge and experience necessary to support decision making and the effective delivery of our objectives. 

These young Directors are appointed on the same terms as their fellow Board members and hold the same responsibilities, though they usually serve for a shorter total term. We support our young Directors to be equipped in their roles to have genuine and non-tokenistic impact through wider coaching and pastoral support.
