Our Board of Trustees

Meet our Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is essential to the governance of the organisation and provides an important function for the smooth running of the charity.  The Trustees are all volunteers who form the governing body of the charity and are responsible for providing the strategic direction and look to safeguard the charity’s aims.

Lasani Wijetunge Senior Researcher

Most of the time we take mental health for granted, not really address it, or give it much air time. I think it’s important to acknowledge that we all have our own unique mental health experiences be it small or big, and we all have a collective responsibility to create spaces to discuss these experiences openly with empathy. I became a Trustee at Changes because it exemplifies how such spaces can be created where we are all peers.

You’ll find me doing photography, yoga or sewing in my spare time.

Joshua Bundy - Head of Marketing
I am Josh, a marketing professional with over 10 years experience in management and leadership roles within non-for-profit, public and private sector organisations. 
 
I joined the Changes Bristol board driven by my passion for mental health and improving the awareness & availability of mental health services to the people that need them.



It’s been an absolutely great experience and something I am so pleased that I did. All of the trustees are made to feel very valued and there is genuine appreciation for the time that we give up.”

Rachel Beale, Chair
