The District Leading Team of the Yorkshire North & East District are the Trustees of Hull International House (HIH).

Since 1961 HIH has remained under the ownership of the Methodist Church.

Balancing post-pandemic relevance whilst maintaining community identity remains very important to the Trustees and so, in early 2022, a review of practice was undertaken.

Following this process of evaluation the trustees recognised the need to implement a clear vision and seek to establish and implement strategic priorities through a robust business plan that allows HIH to move forward with consideration for balancing the House's Christian and pastoral ethos against its long-term economic viability.

It is therefore the intention of the Trustees to introduce a Management Committee that will act as the link between the District Leadership Team and House Manager.
