Hospice in the Weald currently has 13 Trustees, the majority of whom took up their Trusteeship during the last three years. Your Trustees normally serve one or two terms of three years but we do keep our governance arrangements under constant review. The Board, led by Chairman Simon Lee, is the body legally responsible for making sure the charity is doing what it was set up to do. They carry out their roles for free and must act responsibly and only in the interests of the charity, use reasonable care and skill and make well-informed decisions.
The Trustees delegate the day-to-day management of the organisation to the CEO and Directors.
