Chris Robinson, who founded the charity, stepped down as chairman in 2018 and has been appointed as President. He also acts as advisor to all the Barrett's patient support groups.

The Committee meets formally every other month to receive reports on fund-raising and other activities, to review progress on agreed actions and to confirm actions and targets for the following period. Meetings are minuted and copies of minutes are available to members on request.

If you have skills or expertise you can offer or just enthusiasm and wish to join us, we have the power to co-opt further members to the committee. Nominations for new trustees are usually considered at the Annual General Meeting.
