Wikimedia UK is a volunteer-led organisation, which is guided by our trustees and supported by our staff.

Who are we?[edit | edit source]

Trustees[edit | edit source]

  • We have 10 trustees, who are appointed for two-year terms. Our Board is responsible for the overall governance of the organisation.

Staff[edit | edit source]

  • We have 9 full and part-time staff responsible for the day-to-day running of the charity. Most of them work at our London office, but some are in Wales and the North of England. Both our contractors work remotely. In addition, there are Wikimedians in residence at various cultural organisations around the UK, including Scotland.

Members[edit | edit source]

  • We have around 255 members, who appoint our Trustees and vote on resolutions and changes to our Articles.

Volunteers[edit | edit source]

  • We have various committees, made up of a combination of volunteers, trustees and staff. These committees report to the Board, and have delegated responsibility for their topic areas.
  • Many volunteers also contribute to our work in less structured ways. To find some of these, see Category:Wikimedia UK volunteers.
  • There are also around 15,000 volunteers that contribute to the Wikimedia projects in the UK.
  • Many of the volunteers and staff of Wikimedia UK are experienced speakers and presenters. If you would like someone to present at an event, conference or gathering of any kind please do email pressatwikimedia.org.uk
