Steering Committee/Trustees
Our Steering Committee and Trustees consists of an elected body of representatives of non-governmental organisations from across the UK.  The Committee meets around four times a year and helps to guide the strategic direction of UKREN's work, and advises and supports the Secretariat on the basis of their particular area of expertise.

The European Network Against Racism (ENAR), the voice of the anti-racist movement in Europe, is a network of European NGOs working to combat racism in Europe and represents more than 700 NGOs throughout the EU. UKREN acts as the UK platform for ENAR. UKREN's close relationship to ENAR means that we are able to relay information from ENAR to a UK audience as well as channeling the views of our UK members back to ENAR.
