What are Trustees and What Do they Do?

Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. They may be known by other titles, such as directors, board members or committee members.

Whatever they are called, trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee of St Raphael's Hospice means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives.

Our Trustees use their skills and experience to support the Hospice, helping it to achieve its aims. Training is provided, so Trustees will also often learn new skills and acquire new experience during their time on the board.
