DHYP is led by a Board of Trustees that provides strategic direction and oversight for the organisation.

All of the trustees are volunteers that have a strong interest in homelessness prevention and helping young people overcome disadvantage and achieve their unique potential.

The Trustees bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the organisation, ensuring the organisation is able to operate effectively and achieve its mission in a rapidly changing environment.
