Meet The Freeks

 

We are guided by our Youth Steering Committee (YSC) of 10 young leaders aged 16 - 25 from across the West Midlands who rotate on a yearly basis (elected in by the previous YSC) as well as our board directors. We have a extended network of Associates who we work with on a skills-basis keeping our work agile and responsive.
