Our Local Facilitators
All our linking work is led locally by Local Facilitators. These Facilitators are based in local partners – either a local authority or a non-profit organisation. Each brings their own expertise in the fields of education or community development. All facilitators are connected up by our national network of facilitators which comes together 4 times a year to share and learn from one another.
Our Board of Trustees is our governing body and is ultimately responsible for the strategic, legal and financial health of our organisation. Their combined experience and expertise stretches across community development, faith, civil society leadership, finance, law and governance.
