About the Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship
The SWSF is a registered charity, with a modest budget derived from the annual membership fee of the member schools and EY settings. Each member school appoints a trustee from amongst its teaching staff. The trustee body meets once per term, with a smaller group of trustees delegated to take responsibility between these termly meeting.
