Meet the Trustees and Management Team

SFHT is governed by a board of 8 Trustees, each Trustee brings a unique range of experiences and professional expertise to support the management of the organisation. These include education, business planning and development, fundraising, finance, healthcare, housing, building, law, and retail. Some of our Trustees also have personal experience of having a family member with a learning disability.

All Trustees meet formally every 3 months. Individual Trustees head up sub committees and steering groups on a regular basis throughout the year.

Our Management Team is made up of CEO, Director of Operations and Senior Manager that form the Senior Leadership team.  In addition we have 8 Service Managers / Heads of Department who between them have a wealth of experience in the Social Care sector. Each team member specialises in the area that they manage and take a lead role in the Trust on developing their service.

All managers attend monthly meetings as well as regular planning and development sessions. The Trust has a robust structure for staff supervision, appraisal and training.
