The Board of Management is responsible for the overall management of the centre. It comprises of 7 voluntary board members. HFRC policy demands that each board member must be involved in another aspect of the running of the centre. The board is structured across tradition committee lines of Chairperson, Vice- Chair, Company Secretary and Treasurer.

Each area within the centre is overseen by a sub-group. Sub-Group membership is comprised of board members, staff, local volunteers and other agencies and organisations where relevant. While a number of sub-groups are ongoing – such as the Finance and Staff Liaison groups, other sub-groups are temporary and last for the duration of a particular piece of work. For example, an Induction and Recruitment Sub-Group would only be active during a recruitment phase and would be formed at the outset of the process and disbanded one the appointment(s) have been made. On-going and permanent sub-groups are, Finance, Governance, Staff Liasion and Communications.
