The Trustees of Calvert Exmoor

As a registered charity, our Board of Trustees is essential in helping us to achieve our aims responsibly and effectively. They oversee operations, strategy and finances, and ensure that the Trust does what it was set out to do.

We're recruiting Trustees!

Could you join the board and help the centre move forward?

We are extremely lucky to have Trustees from a range of backgrounds who donate their time and expertise to help Calvert Exmoor consolidate its position as one of the leading centres of its type in the country, and continue to deliver challenging outdoor adventure to those with disabilities for many years to come.
