Meet the team

The charity currently employs a Chief Officer to direct the organisation. There are 33 paid members of staff working on various aspects of the service and we have over 100 unpaid volunteers, who give their spare time to help ensure that the centres run smoothly.
The success of the organisation depends on the skills and experience of both staff and volunteers working together.
