Meet the FACE team

All of our team members are volunteers – keeping our running costs down to an absolute minimum.

Stewards are responsible for making sure that FACE observe charity laws at all times and that all funds are are used in line with its stated purpose. They are delegated this responsibility by the Trustees of the Edinburgh & Lothian Health Foundation (ELHF). Stewards are permitted to authorising the use of funds up to £5000, with anything above that approved by the ELHF. Stewards must be either employees of the NHS or hold honorary contracts with the NHS. All Stewards are appointed for a fixed term of 5 years and may be reappointed after this period.

While the Stewards are formal posts – the roles outlined above just help with the organisation around FACE. All involved in FACE are volunteers – there are no paid employees or offices. While many more are interested in the work of FACE, a smaller number of Friends meet each month to discuss what is on the go, how FACE can help and make collective decisions.
