Being a Trustee at St. Rocco’s

St. Rocco’s couldn’t run without the dedicated help and support of hundreds of volunteers.

Our Board of Trustees are all volunteers. They are recruited with the aim of ensuring that the Board has a broad mix of skills necessary to run the charity.

Their appointment is confirmed by a vote of members at the subsequent AGM and is for three years, with the possibility of being re-elected for two further periods of three years, after which time they stand down.

If you want to find out more about becoming a member of St. Rocco's Hospice, or believe that you have something to offer as a trustee, please contact us.
