Our Trustees

SafeWise is supported by a team of trustees with different skills, experience and backgrounds across emergency services, public bodies and the commercial sector. 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 to support and guide the Senior Leadership Team.

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.
