Governance & Leadership (draft)

The Make A Wish team is made up of volunteers and paid staff members.

Make-A-Wish, like all charities, is led by a Chair and Board of Trustees (non-executive directors). Working with the Chair, the Board provide strategic direction and guidance to the charity, and ensure the charity is fulfilling its mission. How the Board works is set out in the Governance Handbook. The Chair and Board are volunteers.
