Board meetings are held in Edinburgh quarterly, and Board members are committed supporters of our public concerts and events. We welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds able to contribute to our work. In particular we are keen to hear from people with skills in the following areas: Legal, HR, Health & Wellbeing.
