Our team includes staff, volunteers and members. We have an Executive Committee that is responsible for the overall governance of Markfield and its services. Our senior management team is responsible for the organisation of services and is led by the Director and Deputy Director who are in charge of decision making and getting funding. Our services are facilitated by our enthusiastic, skilled and passionate staff and volunteer team.

The Executive Committee is responsible for the overall governance of Markfield and its services. The Committee is comprised of service users, parents and carers, and volunteers with relevant skills and experience, elected by members at the Annual General Meeting. The full committee meets quarterly to oversee how everything is progressing and there are two sub committees; one for personnel matters and one for finance, administration and resources management.
