Board of Directors

We have a committed Board of Directors who are responsible in law for the overall governance of the charity. Together they bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from different backgrounds including clinical, family experience of CHD and professional expertise. All our Directors are volunteers – giving up their time and expertise for free. 

As key members of the CHT Team, the Board work behind the scenes to achieve our mission, set strategic direction and ensure we are financially sound and compliant with relevant legislation.
