This is a voluntary position and entails approximately two days per month time commitment although this varies depending upon the Trustee’s particular area of interest.
There will usually be 3-4 Board meetings per year lasting up to three hours. In addition, there may be events held for strategic planning and board development.
There are currently three standing sub committees of the Board (Quality Assurance, Workforce, Finance and Business Development) which normally meet 4 times a year, plus occasional working groups. Board members are usually expected to serve on one of these and to take part in other activities from time to time, e.g. recruitment of senior staff.
Board members are expected to maintain a reasonable level of contact with the hospice so that they understand what it is doing and feel confident about the quality of its work.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice & Healthcare is a local charity that has in place a Board of Trustees to oversee and set its’ future strategy. Currently the board are looking to recruit some new Trustees. We will be seeking applications from the local community from wide range of backgrounds, and ages who will bring a fresh perspective to the Board.
We are keen to reflect the diversity of the communities that we work within and in this respect we would particularly welcome applications by individuals who could help us to support and build meaningful links across ethnic groups.
Joining our board will offer you the opportunity to share your skills/experience and make a difference. As a board member you will contribute to determining strategy, setting goals, together with reviewing outcomes and will be involved in all aspects of strategic activity. You will need to demonstrate a genuine interest in the organisation, and a commitment to team-working, equality and diversity and understand the local community we serve.
You do not need to have previous board or Trustee experience, more important is having shared values, and transferable skills and a committed approach to support the Hospice. You’ll discover opportunities to develop, along with challenges and a shared purpose that will bring the best out in you. Successful candidates will be offered a full induction, ongoing support and mentorship. This is a voluntary position and entails approximately two days per month time commitment although this varies depending upon the Trustee’s particular area of interest.
