Colebrook is governed and led by a voluntary Board of Directors, which meets regularly to oversee the progress and work of the organisation. Board members bring commitment and a range of diverse knowledge and skills to support the organisation. Many of our members are involved with or have used Colebrook services, ensuring a focus on user experiences. The Board meets 8-10 times a year and the Annual General Meeting is held in September of each year.
