Trustees and Governance

Freedom International NOW operates as a registered UK Charity and as such under all the UK regulations and guidelines. We do our best to keep up with, follow and influence best practice – especially in relation to integrity and transparency.

The Charity governance is supervised and managed by the Trustees, with the support of our active Strategic Advisory Groups, Ambassadors, Angels and Partners.
