New Trustees

The Shakespeare Hospice, Stratford upon Avon, is seeking a number of new Trustees in 2015 to support our strategic plan, which focuses on expanding our services so we can help even more people. We particularly want to broaden our funding base and use new technology in innovative ways to generate income and strengthen our presence in the community we serve. This is an opportunity to join us at an exciting stage in our development as we create and implement our new 5 year strategy.

We are looking for Trustees who are experts in their chosen field who will bring that knowledge and passion to a Hospice setting. We would particularly welcome applications from those with specialist knowledge in the following areas; Business Development, Digital Marketing, Income Generation and Retail. Experience in the Not for Profit Sector would be an advantage.

It would be desirable for new trustees to bring with them experience of operating at a board / senior level. You will need a strong sense of accountability, good strategic thinking as well as excellent communication and interpersonal skills. An empathy with Hospice philosophy is essential.

Trustees will be expected to attend 6 board meetings plus a day of strategy planning as well as the AGM each year. They will also provide support to the management team, within their specific areas of expertise, via contribution to a monthly sub-committee. 

We are holding an Open Evening on Friday, 14th August between 4pm and 7pm for potential new trustees. This is an opportunity to talk to current Trustees and the Senior Management Team about the Hospice.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee, please contact Alison Kane on 01789 266852 or via email An information pack will be sent to you.
