About Us

Governance

Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind is governed by a non-executive board. Board members oversee the direction and strategy of the charity holding the senior management team to account and scrutinising their decisions. Board members serve on a voluntary basis. None of them are paid. 

We are fortunate to have a strong board of governors with diverse experience and skills. We are proud to include service users on our board, as well as people with experience in mental health, social care, finance, management and a range of other disciplines.
