Become a Trustee

Do you have the Vision, Passion and Dedication to become part of the team guiding a charity that delivers exceptional Critical Care to people in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight?

We are recruiting a number of Trustees to join our Board in 2023


Role of Trustees

Trustees have overall control of the charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do.

Trustees are “eyes on, hands off” volunteers. They spend approximately 12 part-days per year on charity business. This includes attendance at Board and Sub-Committee Meetings, and other one-off commitments. The role is unpaid; however, Trustees can claim expenses for travel to and from meetings.

Being a Trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives.

Trustees use their skills and experience to support the charity, helping us achieve our aims. Trustees are also supported to learn relevant new skills during their time on the Board.
