THE DAYLESFORD FOUNDATION KEY PEOPLE

Daylesford Foundation is steered by a small group of people, all intent on achieving its aims.  At the healm we have the trustees, who serve as the governing body of the Foundation.  Advising the Trustees is the Grants Board, which has recently been created to advise on the allocation of grant funding.  The officers manage the administration of meetings, grants and projects.
