The Jurassic Coast Trust is run by a Board of Trustees.

We are all passionate about the Jurassic Coast and give our time voluntarily to oversee the running of our charity, to shape its direction, keep it on track and to work with our colleagues and partners towards our shared ambitions.

We bring a wide range of skills and experience to the Trust but we love nothing more than being out on the coast and amongst our communities to see how our work is making a difference. If you see us at an event or activity, do please say hello!

 

Three past Jurassic Coast Trustees have now become Patrons, and are listed here.  Our gratitude to these individuals is enormous.
