Organisation and Governance
The Hansel Group of Charities comprises two companies limited by guarantee, Hansel Foundation and Hansel Alliance. Both are registered charities governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
All care and support services, including 3e employability programmes and social enterprises, are delivered through Hansel Alliance as the subsidiary operations arm of the Group, employing over 400 team members. Hansel Foundation provides senior leadership and corporate services functions for all Hansel activities; resources all fundraising and communications activities; and delivers both revenue and capital project initiatives consistent with the strategic direction agreed by its Board of Directors.
Our Board of Directors oversee Hansel’s work including finance and audit; care practice and quality monitoring; fundraising and communications; people, policy and remuneration; facilities and maintenance; 3e activities; and appointments, with support from members of Hansel’s leadership team.
Meet the Board
Hansel’s voluntary non-executive director team, who receive no remuneration or other benefits in return for their work on the Hansel Group’s behalf, contribute a wide range of skills and experience to the Board. New members are recruited where a skills gap is identified, or where existing members are due to retire following periods of service set out within the charities’ articles of association.Our board members
