We are incredibly grateful to the following people across our community, all around the country, who make up our Advisory Group.

We work closely with them to feed in to our work from their respective communities ensuring we collaborate with those we are creating programmes with. We have always taken the approach that we ask what our community needs and help shape activity with them to ensure we can deliver real impact. Collaboration has always been at the heart of what we do and we are proud to be working with so many leaders in their field.
