Leadership team

We're governed by a Board of Trustees who serve in a voluntary capacity. Our Board of Trustees come from a variety of professional backgrounds and many are long-term supporters of the charity.

Meet our Trustees and Patrons

Along with our Presidents and Royal Patron, our trustees meet regularly and have a range of responsibilities - from ensuring compliance to supporting our strategic development - with an overall aim of making sure we’re making progress for people affected by blood cancer.
