Meet The Team

On the 1st of September 2016 the Stoke on Trent City Council “Green Door” project ended and all paid Staff & volunteers ceased to work for the Green Door project, as it ceased to be. Since that date a new organisation, Green Door CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisations), has been formed and is run by an independent committee and staffed entirely by volunteers.


From Sept/Oct 2018 Green Door will no longer be “staffed entirely by volunteers” as we have been successful in a bid from the National Lottery that will provide funding for one full and two part time staff.

Below you get to see who makes up our committee, and who our volunteers are. We thank them all for their hard work and dedication.
