Meet our Trustees

Read Easy UK is supported by a team of wonderful trustees. However, as Lesley Wagstaffe is stepping down after four years with the charity, we are now looking to recruit a new Chair. We are also looking for someone to join the Board who has high level experience in the field of adult basic skills education. For a full role description for both the Chair and Trustee roles, please go to the news page: /news/
