The Trustees are a group of local people who wish to see the Carnegie fully in use, with a sustainable income that secures its future.  In keeping with Andrew Carnegie’s vision, the Trustees wish to ensure that space is always available at Carnegie for lifelong learning – from out-of-school provision through to work skills improvement, literacy and citizenship classes or simply learning something new, at any age.   The Trustees are:
