Wider Expertise

Recognising the limit of personal detailed experience, the Board draws on a wider group of experts to help inform strategy and policy. This consultative role is fulfilled by a series of councils that reflect the areas of the Trust’s work, namely :

  • Children and young people in education
  • Experiential Learning & Young Employees
  • Youth & community

If you have experience in any of these areas of work and would like to support and influence the work of the Trust, please contact us to explore how that might work enquiries@lindley.org
