Our Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance of Forever Hounds Trust – for the charity’s overall direction, effectiveness and accountability.

In addition to their governance role, each of Forever Hounds Trust’s Trustees has a hands-on voluntary role.

Our Trustees are: Jan Lake (Chair), Peter Stevenson (Honorary Treasurer), Pat Wilder,  Keira Roth, Janet Weaver and Ros Hawley.

Our staff

As Forever Hounds Trust has grown in size, we have developed a small central  staff team, to ensure the charity is effectively and sustainably managed. Our Chief Executive Officer is responsible for developing and delivering the charity’s long-term strategy, as well as co-ordinating Forever Hounds Trust’s operations. Other staff posts provide vital day-to-day support across the charity’s regions in homing, fundraising, operations and volunteering. All of our staff are part-time, and all work remotely from home. Meet the staff team here.
