Our Trustees

Manna House Trustees

As Manna House is a registered charity we have a Board of Trustees whose role is to oversee everything we do at a strategic level and ensure that we comply with charity legislation and adhere to our charitable objectives. As Manna House is also a company limited by guarantee, they are also our Directors. They are also volunteers and support our work in many other ways and we are hugely grateful for their help and advice.
