The Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) is governed and managed by a Board of Directors who work in conjunction with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

The Board’s key role is to set, revise and monitor CHP’s culture, strategy, and risk management approach and to appoint the CEO. The Directors are elected by the members, and tend to be drawn from the specialist homelessness sector, academia and  specialist  areas such as law and accounting.

The CEO is responsible for the day-to-day functions of CHP within the framework of policies and strategic guidelines established by the Board.
