The THYSF board of trustees has representatives from the public and private sector. The foundation is constitutionally structured to maintain this balance, with representation from Head Teachers from both Primary and Secondary schools in Tower Hamlets. This was particularly valuable when transitioning from the School Sports Partnership to a Charity in 2012.

We also have Youth Representatives who have progressed through our Stepping Stones Programme as Sports Ambassadors and Physical Education Teaching Assistants. Their role is to ensure that the voice of the young people in Tower Hamlets is always represented and that our guiding principles meet their needs.
