The charity is managed, like all UK charities, by a Board of Trustees. The charity is also a company, and so the trustees are also directors. Trustees of the charity are all unpaid volunteers and are responsible under both charity and company law.
The board has appointed a Chief Executive to administer the day to day operations of the charity and to work towards the organisation’s key objectives. The Chief Executive has the support of an Administrative Assistant.
The board includes (and will always include) a number of people who are affected by haemochromatosis, in order to ensure focus on patient benefit. All bring their own particular expertise and experience, in addition to which they are supported by a group of respected medical advisers.
