Board of Trustees

As a registered charity, the Hospice of the Good Shepherd is governed by a Board made up of a number of trustees. All of our trustees are volunteers and do not receive payment for their services or support. For a list of our trustees please following this link. The full Board of trustees meets six times each year to review policy, potential service developments, finances and income generation, however our trustees also meet at regular sub-committee meetings. The day-to-day running of the Hospice is delivered by the senior management team, led by the Chief Executive. If you’d like to request more detailed information about the governance of the Hospice, then please contact us via email using

New Trustees

The Chair of the Board is responsible for making sure our Board of Trustees has the skills and experience necessary to effectively govern the Hospice. We recruit new trustees according to the needs of the Hospice.
Due to the forthcoming retirement of a current Trustee, we currently have a vacancy on our Board. We are particularly interested to hear from people with general management experience, ideally with a CEO or Commercial Director background. If you feel you have the skills and energy to contribute to our ongoing success and would like to help shape the future of palliative care at the hospice we would love to hear from you.
