Board of directors

Compassion CEO, Dr Tim Hanna, is responsible to a voluntary Board of Directors. The board is made up of seven community leaders with a wealth of experience in business and church ministry. As a company limited by guarantee, we also have a Constitution that defines our purpose and objectives, and places limits around how income can be applied.

It is the role of these leaders to ensure we operate in accordance with the principles and commitments stated in our Constitution.
