Our board of Trustees

Our Boards of Trustees are responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of the Charity.

They meet regularly during the year to consider, determine and review Help for Heroes' strategies and policies, and to receive reports from senior management. 

All Trustees work for Help for Heroes in an unpaid, voluntary capacity. 

The Board delegates some of its group powers and responsibilities in a series of sub-committees.
