We employ almost 500 staff, and have a network of more than 300 volunteers, who each play a vital role in helping us to empower people and change lives.

Every one of our staff and volunteers including our Board of Trustees and our Executive Directors are vital in ensuring we do all we can for the people who need us most.  Our Trustees and Directors set the Charity’s strategic direction, monitor the delivery of the our objectives, uphold our values and governance and guide, advise and support the Charity towards achieving our vision and purpose.

The Board of Trustees is led by the Chairman, Martin Cheeseman, OBE and our Chief Executive is Patrick Ryan.
