Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of Jigsaw. They meet regularly to discuss, decide and review our strategies and policies and receive reports and updates from senior managers. Our trustees work for Jigsaw voluntarily to make sure we’re doing all we can to ensure young people are connected to their community and have the resilience to face challenges to their mental health.
