The strategic development and overall responsibility for the organisation is set by the Board of Trustees, currently a body of five dedicated and skilled trustees which meets on a monthly basis, setting both policy and direction.

Equality Together is a disabled peoples user led organisation that supports and empowers people facing disabling barriers and is overseen and managed by experts with lived experience.

These individuals bring to the organisation direct experience of disability, a wealth of knowledge and skills from all sectors combined with diversity.
