Meet the teams

In recent years JHC has professionalised its administration to keep pace with the times and its evolving charitable remit. All our staff and Trustees undertake regular professional development, in issues such as effective governance and liability management, giving JHC confidence to expand and evolve.

Staff team

As well as contributing specific skills and experience, our team is always prepared to go that ‘extra mile’, helping JHC to be far greater than the sum of its parts. It is the unique quality and character of our staff team that makes the charity so viable.

Board of Trustees

JHC’s Trustees come from all walks of life and the charity benefits enormously from their wide range of skills and knowledge; we hope they find their experience of being a JHC trustee of value too.

The Board meets regularly to help JHC navigate its challenges and celebrate its successes equally. It acts as a single body to deliver and communicate our shared vision, keep a check on the organisation’s finances and activities, appoint and support the head of staff and take overall legal responsibility for the organisation’s work. All Trustees are volunteers.
