How Perennial is organised
Perennial employs staff around the UK to help and support horticulturists and their families. A team of senior managers and support staff is based at the charity’s head office in Leatherhead, Surrey with dedicated advisers and fundraisers based around the UK.
Perennial is governed by a Board of Trustees who serve on a voluntary basis. They are drawn from a variety of professions but all have a common objective of providing the very best in support services to those in need in horticulture.
