Our Directors/Trustees

The strength of our Bradford YMCA Board of Trustees and management team lies in the fact that they are all excellent and proactive volunteers on our winter shelter.

They have first-hand experience of our guests’ complex needs and compassion to help, having put in hundreds of hours to support and care for them.

The team are representative of a wide range of professions and churches, and meet quarterly.
