Our Trustees and Boards

SafeWise is supported by a dedicated team of trustees and board members. Our Main Board is the key decision-making and governance body and is made up of trustees who meet twice a year. This board nominates members to our smaller Executive Board who meet more frequently and at least four times a year to support and guide the Senior Leadership Team. Each centre is supported by a Local Board, chaired by a trustee and made up of a wide range of local representatives from public and private sectors. The local board support Centre Managers in delivering the business plan at a local level.

We are seeking greater diversity and representation on our boards. If you have skills and experience which you think might be useful to the charity, please contact our Business Manager Hazel Serkis to arrange an informal visit and chat in the first instance.
