Hospice UK is running a one-day masterclass for hospice trustees to develop their understanding and awareness of the trustee's role and responsibilities in running an effective hospice. The masterclass will be informal but intensive and interactive/participative. Resource material will be supplied to support attendees as well as signposting to further sources of information, and support for the trustee role.

What you will get from the day

By the end of the masterclass trustees will gain:

  • greater clarity about your core role when acting as a trustee for your hospice
  • more in-depth knowledge of your legal responsibilities and duties as a trustee of a charity and a director of a company limited by guarantee
  • increased awareness of working in partnership with your chief executive and/or senior management
  • a structured opportunity to network with trustees from other hospices.
