Trustees have overall control of the charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do and are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. At Tree of Hope the day to day running of the charity is delegated to Gill Gibb, our CEO, and her team. All the key decisions and strategic direction are the responsibility of the Trustees, alongside ensuring the good financial state of the charity. Gill helps and contributes to the discussions and decisions made.

Our Trustees do this role voluntarily, giving up their own time to use their skills and experience to help us be the best we can be – all are motivated by a keen desire to help others and give back.
