We are looking for exceptional people to join our board of trustees and would like interested people to get in touch to find out more about how their unique talents can make a real difference to the hospice.

We are especially interested in hearing from people with experience in health or social care operating environments, health commissioning or those with digital expertise.  We would also welcome people with a background in retail or charity fundraising or those who have experience of innovation, change and continuous improvement programmes.

Emily McWhirter (pictured), one of our trustees said, “We are looking for talented, driven people who share our vision to provide the very best care and support to local people affected by terminal illness.

“You may not have thought about a being a trustee before and may feel a little daunted; but you don’t need to be an expert in hospice care or to have had previous trustee experience.

“We will provide an induction plan and full training along with a nominated buddy to support you.

“We value diversity because a wide mix of skills and perspectives brings enormous benefits to our board.  So, we are actively encouraging applications from a range of backgrounds and experiences.”  

The deadline for applications is 25th February 2019.
