Advisory Board

The purpose of the advisory board is to provide our trustees with advice and guidance in the development of the Foundation and with the establishment of our centre of excellence for social and emotional learning. It is currently in the process of being established.

It is not envisaged to be in excess of six individuals during the course of 2019 and is expected to meet once a quarter. Whilst the individuals involved will be compensated for expenses they will not be remunerated. Further details will be posted on individuals as they join the board.

“The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.”
