At UKYCC our Trustees play an important role as our sounding board: we bounce ideas off of them, call on their experience, and ask their advice. They do not dictate anything that UKYCC does, but they help make things a whole lot better. Without our Trustees we would be a very different organisation indeed. 

Our current trustees include: 


Leia Achampong
