HIWCF is a registered charity, run by the Chief Executive and overseen by a board of voluntary trustees, who donate their time and expertise to ensure the Foundation meets its key objectives of “Local giving for local needs”. Our trustees have a wide range of experience from the corporate and charitable sectors, and represent every district of Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Southampton and Portsmouth so understand the diverse challenges and needs across our region. This excellent team works hard to ensure our local communities thrive and local people in need receive the life-changing opportunities they deserve.
