Meet the Directors

The Trust is managed by a board of directors, with the support of a facilities manager employed to look after our buildings on a day-to-day basis. Our Chief Executive is the only director who receives remuneration for his services; the remaining directors are all unpaid volunteers.

We have two types of director; resident directors - as the name suggests, these must be resident in the East Brighton geographical locality and co-opted directors, who are selected for their skills and experience in business and other fields.

We have a dedicated team of directors from a wide range of backgrounds, who  bring a wealth of experience to Trust:
