Board of Management

The day-to-day running of Calman is looked after by the Chief Executive and her team. However, the Calman Trust also benefits from expert oversight from our Board of Directors who come from a range of backgrounds to ensure Calman has advice and leadership from both business and social experts. Crucially, our Board also ensures that Calman’s finances are run responsibly so that our resources are used where they are needed most – helping young people across the Highlands.
