Meet the team

Five Talents UK consists of a small London-based team which fundraises for our partners and provides programme oversight. All of our projects are implemented via a network of local partner organisations, each of which have detailed knowledge of the area in which they work. 

As a registered charity, Five Talents has a Board of Trustees and a Council of Reference made up of public figures from relevant sectors. We are also proud to have the Archbishop of Canterbury as our patron.
