Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Council of Governors. There are forty-three seats on the Council, thirty-two of which are elected and eleven of which are appointed. Appointed means that the seats are given to organisations with whom we work closely – organisations that are our stakeholders.

Governors serve a three year term and can serve up to three terms if re-elected.
