With growing demand for our services, working within an increasingly complex healthcare environment AND with a possible new build on the horizon, we are looking for dynamic individuals to join our volunteer Board of Trustees. You’ll be using your skills and experience to guide the direction of the charity through exciting times, securing the governance of the organisation, contributing to its strategic future and acting as an ambassador for all aspects of our work.

A number of Trustee retirements are happening this year and we are particularly interested to hear from people with a background and experience in finance, clinical (senior nursing), legal, retail, planning and/or building programme management. No experience of hospice care is required and you do not have to have held a trustee role previously – knowledge you have gained from other sectors or roles may be just as useful, and you can be sure that you will enjoy a solid induction and learn new skills as a member of our Board.

We are holding two Open Events as an opportunity to introduce you to our important work, to meet current Trustees and Hospice managers and to find out more about what’s involved. The dates and times are:-

• Thursday 1st June – 6pm to 8pm
• Saturday 3rd June – 10am to 12pm

To attend, please register your interest with Peter Nesbitt, emailing or phoning 01293 447 351 (8.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday). Peter will be happy to answer any questions you may have in advance.

Application packs will be available at these sessions.

If you are unable to attend one of the above sessions but wish to register your interest in applying please also contact Peter Nesbitt.
