We are a dedicated group of professionals and volunteers, working together to create living streets around the UK.
Living Streets’ Board of Trustees meets four times a year and is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation. They ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulation, as well as the continuing financial health of Living Streets. They also hold the Chief Executive to account for the efficient and effective running of the organisation. Find out more about our Board of Trustees.
