Wikimedia UK's operational structure is designed to engage and encourage volunteers over a wide range of skills and experiences.

The charity is led by a board of volunteer trustees, to be supported by expert advisory boards including a Cultural and GLAM advisory board and possibly an Educational outreach advisory board.

A Volunteer engagement panel provides opportunities to contribute to strategy and procedures/operations, while an Evaluation panel assesses proposed and existing projects.

Volunteers who prefer to leave matters of governance and process to others and to concentrate on actually doing the open knowledge work - which is after all why we are all here - can work with us either independently or via with one of our special-interest working groups. Working volunteers are supported by our dedicated project coordinator staff.
