Could you be the next St Catherine’s trustee?

News and Blog

We’re looking for voluntary trustees to support our vital work caring for local people living with a life-limiting or terminal condition. Could you or someone you know be a good fit?

Trustees provide governance to our hospice, contribute to our strategic future and act as an ambassador for all aspects of our work.

And there’s never been a more exciting time to support us after our recent move to a larger hospice at Pease Pottage.  

Anyone interested in becoming a trustee is invited to visit our hospice on Grace Holland Avenue on Monday 8 or Monday 15 January from 6pm to 8pm. This will provide a chance to learn more about the role and to meet our current trustees and current Chair, our Chief Executive Giles Tomsett and the hospice’s Senior Management Team.  

Peter Nesbitt, our Head of Business Planning, Risk and Volunteering said, “By becoming a trustee you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re supporting a charity that provides essential care and support to around 2,000 people every year.  

“All skills and experience are welcome but we’re particularly keen to hear from people with IT, Legal, Clinical/Medical, Human Resources, Equality and Diversity, and Fundraising and Marketing knowledge. 

“We also want to represent all parts of our community. We encourage applications from people with disabilities, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community, non-binary candidates and those who have experienced mental health problems. “Sometimes people might see their differences as a barrier to hospice care but we support everyone. It would be wonderful to reflect that within our trustees too.”  

If you would like to find out more or apply to become a trustee, please email or phone 01293 447351 between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday for an application pack. The closing date for completed applications is Sunday 4 February 2024.
