Leap Home



Leap is careful to ensure that, where possible, expert advice is available to support the projects and to inform management decisions. As well as drawing on the knowledge of the Board of Trustees, we therefore also have a number of small advisory groups. These meet regularly to provide input into the organisation. The members are as follows:
