Since 1984 the Centre has been operating as a company limited by guarantee. The company is a registered charity. Responsibility for the management of the Centre lies with the Council of Management, whose members are chosen to reflect a wide cross-section of experience.
Members of the Council of Management include Mrs Kay Preston (Chairperson); Dr. Janet Seargeant (Vice Chairperson); Dr. Batia Friedmann; Mrs Vivien Wilkinson, Ms Imelda Duignan and Mr Stephen Radford. The Council of Management meet on a regular basis. Meetings are also attended by two representatives of the Centre’s staff.
