We consider ourselves very lucky as a charity to have a passionate and committed staff team all of whom believe wholeheartedly in what we endeavour to achieve year upon year. Many of our staff are returned volunteers and so are well able to empathise and support our volunteers during their placement.
The Project Trust Staff Team
We pride ourselves on having a dynamic, young core of staff who bring fresh ideas and perspective to what we do.
Although we are the longest running Gap Year Volunteering Charity in the UK, and we continue to work within the same founding principles as we did in 1967, the world is a constantly changing environment and it is important that we not only recognise this, but respond to it. Our Management Team are committed to supporting the development of Project Trust and its staff while continuing to offer the same high quality experiences as we always have.
The full-time staff are complemented by a dedicated and enthusiastic Board of Directors, again many of whom are returned volunteers. From here we continue to receive the highest level of support, advice and guidance.
