An Update from our CEO

Hello, I am Nick Farthing, the Acting Chief Executive of Hospice in the Weald. For the past 11 years, Rob Woolley has been our CEO and has written these updates. He has recently made the decision to retire, and having worked closely with Rob, I have stepped in to fill the position until a recruitment process is run.

A number of our supporters will have met Rob over the years and even more will have seen the impact that he had as Chief Executive. The Hospice has grown and reached more families in this time. After 11 years of service to the organisation and local community, we wish Rob the best for his retirement.

Whilst this may seem like quite a change for the organisation, in reality, our focus and work remains the same: to ensure everyone who needs Hospice care will get that care. I am pleased to be picking up the baton and serving our local community in this way.

This edition also contains further information about the launch of our Children’s Service. After over 40 years of serving the adult population in our local community, we will be extending that care to children and young people too.
