Governance and leadership
As an organisation, Make-A-Wish UK is made up of paid members of staff and volunteers who kindly give their time.
Like all charities, we are led by a Chair and Board of Trustees (non-executive directors). They are also volunteers who work together to provide strategic direction and guidance to the charity, and ensure the charity is fulfilling its mission.
How the Board works is set out in this Governance Handbook.

Meet the Senior Leadership Team
The day-to-day operation of Make-A-Wish is led by a team of three directors who have strategic and functional responsibilities. They are led by a Chief Executive, who reports to the Chair of the Board of Trustees.
At Make-A-Wish we're committed to ensuring full accountability and transparency, not least when it comes to pay transparency. The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting pay of senior leadership within the charity and this is informed by independent benchmarking. In the financial year 2023-2024 the salary set for our Chief Executive role, held by Jason Suckley, is £112,500, and the Director's salaries range from £85,000 - £92,000.
