We Are Family is a user-led organisation that is entirely run by volunteers. All our members are adoptive parents or prospective adopters. Each of our currenly eleve groups have a steering group who oversees events and activities in their area.
WAF has a governing board of twelve trustees, two of whom are Chair and Deputy Chair. All board members are volunteers and most are WAF members. The board meets every two months to focus on the charity's strategy, finances and reviewing the delivery of its services.
To ensure work progresses in between board meeting, the board has established three committees: Strategy, Finance & Resources and Services. These are populated mainly by board members, but regular WAFers also attend. Thus all eleven groups are represented on the Services Committee.
