Under The Umbrella Governance

Meet Our Committee 

 Our Committee is a very diverse group of folk, who are each passionate about the LGBTQ+ community, young people and their families.

When setting up the organisation the objective was to ensure our committee could not only represent the broadest spectrum of the community as possible, but also provide the organisation with oversight from a group of individuals that have experience and knowledge in as many different facets of society as possible.  Folks from the worlds of Education, Health, mental Health, Business, Safeguarding, Police, Fitness & Wellbeing, IT, Faith Youth, Inclusion & Accessibility, Funding, Home Education,  Human Rights & Unions, Sport, Schools workers, Performance and Art,  govern us through four meetings per year and ongoing, close oversight and management of the Operational team.
