Meet The Team

Our team at Student Life is made up of dedicated and passionate young people, supported by a core senior team. 

We value the voice and input of our young people and encourage them to sit on our Executive Board, Board of Trustees and Steering Group. It is our young people who drive Student Life as a charity, ensuring what we do is relevant and engaging.

The Board

Our Board is responsible for the governance of Student Life and all matters in adherence to our registration to the charity commission. Our Executive Directors are responsible for the implementation of Student Life’s strategy as well as the day-to-day running of the charity. Our Trustee Board holds the Executive Directors to account and ultimately has the overall responsibility for the management of Student Life.
