More useful information

Introduction from our Chairman, Charles Simpson.

Our trustees’ support the success of the Hospice’s mission: ensuring those facing dying, death and grief can access the help they need.

For anyone keen to give back to the community in this way, it is an exciting time to join and influence important strategic decisions relating to the future of hospice care in West Suffolk and Thetford, especially as we respond to Covid-19’s impact on care at the end of life and bereavement, and income generation.

As a trustee, you will contribute to decision making at Board-level and use your expertise to enable strategies put forward by our Clinical, HR and Finance and Investment Committees.

Our current trustees come from all walks of life, and although we are not involved in the day-to-day running of the organisation, we work together as a team in a supervisory role, providing direction to the charity’s leadership team to keep St Nicholas Hospice Care moving forward while ensuring the charity is well-governed.

Recruitment timeline
  • Applications are to be received by 6 January 2023;
  • Interviews to take place between 16-23 January 2023;
  • Confirmation of successful applicants by the end of January;
  • Induction and attendance of first Board meeting in February, where new Trustees will be formally appointed.
