Who We Are

PATCHWORK is a charity (number 1157186) and a company limited by guarantee (number 08510835).

We are run by a management committee or trustees  made up of local people some of whom set up the Project in 2001 and continue to help run the project today: they also get help from some other people that are employed because they have expertise in areas such as safeguarding, ethics and finance.
