Increasingly, our focus has been towards the Shelter Project, however MY UK Trustees have been able to personally contribute towards the fulfilment of these aims through the following:
Trusteeship within the organisation Nida Trust, an educational charity that aims to raise aspirations in young people. Nida Trust has a key focus in empowering and supporting Teaching leadership to benefit young people.
