Rainbows Trustee Vacancies (non-remunerated roles)

Rainbows Hospice for Children & Young People is based in Loughborough, Leicestershire, and is the only hospice across the East Midlands that delivers a comprehensive range of support services, nursing and care for children and young people aged 0-30 with life threatening and life limiting conditions and their families.

As a Trustee for Rainbows your commitment will make a direct difference to the families we support. The work involved in being a trustee can be demanding but is also immensely rewarding, providing both expected and unexpected opportunities for personal development.

You will be joining a multi-skilled and talented Board of Trustee’s, who have a collective responsibility to govern our work. They ensure Rainbows is well managed, delivers on its promises, and continues to demonstrate good governance and excellence in all areas of our operation. The rewards of working with, and learning from, people from different backgrounds and skills will be great. You will help plan and fulfil our strategic future and make policy decisions to ensure we are accountable to our families, our sponsors, the Charity Commission and the public in general.

The demand for our service continues to grow and we are committed to remain ahead of the game exceeding expectations, and we need excellent skills of committed individuals who can help us grow the service we offer. The best boards are diverse, with people who have a real understanding of the needs to be met and others who have specific skills and knowledge that can complement that.

Rainbows is interested to hear from outstanding candidates with board level experience, and significant Legal and I.T expertise.

Rainbows supports children, young people and their families from many multi-cultural and multi ethnic communities across the East Midlands. We welcome applications reflective of the region and rich diversity of the communities we serve.
