Peace Hospice Care provides specialist support for individuals and their families and carers facing a life-limiting illness across the Hertfordshire community. Our role in the community is to deliver the best care we can and be that essential support when needed.  

We deliver a Hospice at Home service, which takes hospice care to patients living in their own homes. We also offer high quality care in our Inpatient Unit, and wellbeing support, clinics, rehabilitation, counselling and bereavement support in the Starlight Centre. Alongside these services we run a volunteering befriending service for patients needing that extra bit of help at home.

We are looking for new Board members; to join our already experienced Board of Trustees –

We are particularly keen to attract candidates from our local ethnic minority communities. 

Joining our Board will offer you an exciting opportunity to share your skills and make an important contribution to our strategic direction and continuous improvement.  Key to this will be a clear demonstration of enthusiasm to embrace our mission to develop and grow a community-based first class service that our patients, individuals, staff, volunteers, supporters and customers are proud of.

You will need to demonstrate commitment to a high level of engagement, equality and diversity, teamwork, championing issues/services, accountability and outcomes-based service provision.
