The Charity:

HDH provides symptom management, end-of-life care, respite, emotional and bereavement support across central southern England. We are dedicated to the care and support of babies, children, teenagers and young adults and their families. We provide in-house care at our purpose-built facilities in Oxford, 24/7 and we support people in their own homes, their local community, and in hospitals. We do this through our expert team of staff and volunteers, working closely with each individual, their family, and the wider team of professionals around them.

The Role:

We have a fantastic opportunity for a new Trustee at our amazing children’s hospice in Oxford. We are field leaders in children’s palliative care and without a great Trustee Board we could not provide the level of care and support that we do.

This very fulfilling role is unpaid and a time commitment of at least six days a year plus the requirement to attend other ad hoc meetings and events. Board Meetings currently take place bi-monthly in Oxford. Training and support will be provided.

For more information or an informal discussion please contact Clare Periton (CEO) on 01865 794749 or email or our Trustee Chair by email

The closing date for applications is 30th November 2018 and the interviews will be held w/c 10th December 2018 at the hospice.

Individuals at Helen & Douglas House are required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. Helen & Douglas House is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all trustees, staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
