Our organisation consists of a small staff team conducting fundraising and delivering our community projects, governed by our Board of Trustees.

The board of trustees is the governing body of the charity chaired by our founder member John Oke, the board convenes at least six times a year to ensure the charitable objectives are being fulfilled and discuss future initiatives.

In addition, trustees are involved in sub-committee meetings. Subcommittees may be set up to specifically focus on an area of work, examples of sub-committees at The CARAF Centre in the past are: Fundraising, Policies and Finance etc.

STAFF

We have small staff team of approximately 17 employees made up full and part-time employees and volunteers. Fundraising and project delivery are the two main priority areas of work.


Staff and volunteers often give up their time to actively get involved and deliver additional annual community activities and training events.


The expertise, experience and flexibility of the staff team has been crucial in enabling the CARAF Centre to deliver services and events that support the emerging needs and issues of our users.
