Organisation and Governance
The Hansel Group of Charities comprises two companies limited by guarantee, Hansel Foundation and Hansel Alliance. Both are registered charities, each 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.
Each Board of Directors adopts a sub-committee structure to oversee specific areas of Hansel’s work, with each sub-committee being supported by relevant members of Hansel’s leadership team. All sub committees operate within agreed terms of reference, and deal with remits such as; finance and audit; care practice and quality monitoring; fundraising and communications; people, policy and remuneration; facilities and maintenance; 3e activities; and appointments.
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 respective Boards. New members are recruited to the Boards 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
