Who We Are

Meet the whole team

The South West Coast Path Association is a registered charity and volunteer led organisation governed by Trustees. 

The Trustees delegate responsibility to the Path Committee for all operational matters. These members are mostly Area Reps who oversee a number of Local Reps, all of whom are volunteers. They walk the Path regularly, survey and report on the state of the Path and ensure our funds raised for Path improvements are used where most needed. 

The rest of the work of the Association is undertaken by staff members. Led by our Director, we work to ensure the Business Plan set out by the Trustees is delivered and our volunteers are supported in their endeavours.
