The UKYCC Trustees play an essential role. They are our sounding board, whom we can call on, gain inspiration and knowledge from, and connect us to wider networks. UKYCC Trustees do not dictate our activities but they do keep us well-rounded and our standards high.


Without our Trustees we would be a very different organisation indeed:

Sulaiman Ilyas-Jarrett

She's now an artist and is interested in the links between art and activism.
