Our trustees are an amazing team of people who guide and lead TLA, keeping us financially and strategically secure.
“Being a trustee at TLA means I am helping to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. I’m part of a team who are skilled in the real world and bring a range of expertise and experience, there’s a real contributory spirit at TLA. It’s the right place for those who are compassionate and those who get fired up about social justice issues” Shahab Adris, Lecturer, Leeds Beckett School of Health and TLA Trustee
Our trustees make sure we are working towards our charitable purposes and supporting us to plan for a successful future.
