Together for Short Lives is the charity here to make sure the UK’s 99,000 children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families can make the most of every moment they have together – whether that’s for years, months or only hours. We work with families and the brilliant people that support them – in hospital, children’s hospices and the community.

Together for Short Lives is in a period of exciting growth and change as we seek to ensure all children and families have access to high quality, sustainable children’s palliative care when and where they need it. We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic Chair to lead the Board in the next exciting phase of the charity.

The Chair will bring an authoritative and respected voice to Together for Short Lives. You must be passionate about what we do and have credible skills, experience, and knowledge of children’s palliative care. As a key ambassador for Together for Short Lives, you will have strong communication skills and be able to build relationships with our multiple stakeholders.

This is a critical role in providing overall leadership to the charity and the Board of Trustees in particular, ensuring the Board fulfils its responsibilities for the governance of the charity and enabling it to achieve this vision.

We are always looking for talented people and welcome people regardless of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, race, faith or belief and sexual orientation.

To apply for this role please send an up to date CV and a covering letter of no more than 2 pages setting out your motivation and what you would bring to the role.
